# Decimal.ToUInt16 Method

Silverlight

Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 16-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative is ToInt32(Decimal).

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
```[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ushort ToUInt16(
decimal value
)
```

#### Parameters

value
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal value to convert.

#### Return Value

Type: System.UInt16
A 16-bit unsigned integer equivalent to the value of value.
ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than UInt16.MaxValue or less than UInt16.MinValue.

The return value is the integral part of the decimal value; fractional digits are truncated.

The following code example converts Decimal numbers to UInt16 values using the ToUInt16 method.

```
// Example of the decimal.ToInt16 and decimal.ToUInt16 methods.
using System;

class Example
{
const string formatter = "{0,16}{1,19}{2,19}";

// Get the exception type name; remove the namespace prefix.
public static string GetExceptionType(Exception ex)
{
string exceptionType = ex.GetType().ToString();
return exceptionType.Substring(
exceptionType.LastIndexOf('.') + 1);
}

// Convert the decimal argument; catch exceptions that are thrown.
public static void DecimalToU_Int16(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, decimal argument)
{
object Int16Value;
object UInt16Value;

// Convert the argument to a short value.
try
{
Int16Value = decimal.ToInt16(argument);
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
Int16Value = GetExceptionType(ex);
}

// Convert the argument to a ushort value.
try
{
UInt16Value = decimal.ToUInt16(argument);
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
UInt16Value = GetExceptionType(ex);
}

outputBlock.Text += String.Format(formatter, argument,
Int16Value, UInt16Value) + "\n";
}

public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
{
outputBlock.Text += String.Format("This example of the \n" +
"  decimal.ToInt16( decimal ) and \n" +
"  decimal.ToUInt16( decimal ) \nmethods " +
"generates the following output. It \ndisplays " +
"several converted decimal values.\n") + "\n";
outputBlock.Text += String.Format(formatter, "decimal argument",
"short/exception", "ushort/exception") + "\n";
outputBlock.Text += String.Format(formatter, "----------------",
"---------------", "----------------") + "\n";

// Convert decimal values and display the results.
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, 123M);
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, new decimal(123000, 0, 0, false, 3));
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, 123.999M);
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, 65535.999M);
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, 65536M);
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, 32767.999M);
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, 32768M);
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, -0.999M);
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, -1M);
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, -32768.999M);
DecimalToU_Int16(outputBlock, -32769M);
}
}
