Int32::MaxValue Field

Represents the largest possible value of an Int32. This field is constant.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public:
literal int MaxValue

The value of this constant is 2,147,483,647; that is, hexadecimal 0x7FFFFFFF.

The following example uses the MaxValue property to prevent an OverflowException when converting to an Int32 value.

using namespace System;

void main()
{
   array<Int64>^ numbersToConvert = gcnew array<Int64> { 162345, 32183, -54000, 
                                                         Int64::MaxValue/2 };
   Int32 newNumber;
   for each (Int64 number in numbersToConvert)
   {
      if ((number >= Int32::MinValue) && (number <= Int32::MaxValue))
      {
         newNumber = Convert::ToInt32(number);
         Console::WriteLine("Successfully converted {0} to an Int32.", 
                           newNumber);
      }
      else
      {
         Console::WriteLine("Unable to convert {0} to an Int32.", number);
      }
   }
}
// The example displays the following output to the console: 
//    Successfully converted 162345 to an Int32. 
//    Successfully converted 32183 to an Int32. 
//    Successfully converted -54000 to an Int32. 
//    Unable to convert 4611686018427387903 to an Int32.
