# Decimal.ToUInt16 Method

.NET Framework 4.5

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.

Namespace:  System
Assemblies:   mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
System.Runtime (in System.Runtime.dll)

## Syntax

```[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ushort ToUInt16(
decimal value
)
```

#### Parameters

value
Type: System.Decimal

The decimal number to convert.

#### Return Value

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

## Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

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

## Remarks

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

## Examples

The following example uses the ToUInt16 method to convert decimal numbers to UInt16 values.

```using System;

class Example
{
public static void Main( )
{
decimal[] values = { 123m, new Decimal(123000, 0, 0, false, 3),
123.999m, 65535.999m, 65536m,
32767.999m, 32768m, -0.999m,
-1m,  -32768.999m, -32769m };

foreach (var value in values) {
try {
ushort number = Decimal.ToUInt16(value);
Console.WriteLine("{0} --> {1}", value, number);
}
catch (OverflowException e)
{
Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", e.GetType().Name, value);
}
}
}
}
// The example displays the following output:
//     123 --> 123
//     123.000 --> 123
//     123.999 --> 123
//     65535.999 --> 65535
//     OverflowException: 65536
//     32767.999 --> 32767
//     32768 --> 32768
//     -0.999 --> 0
//     OverflowException: -1
//     OverflowException: -32768.999
//     OverflowException: -32769
```
