Convert.ToUInt32 Method (Int32)

Converts the value of the specified 32-bit signed integer to an equivalent 32-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static uint ToUInt32(
	int value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32

The 32-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt32
A 32-bit unsigned integer that is equivalent to value.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is less than zero.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an integer array to an unsigned integer.

int[] numbers = { Int32.MinValue, -1203, 0, 121, 1340, Int32.MaxValue };
uint result;
foreach (int number in numbers)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToUInt32(number);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to the {2} value {3}.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number,
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   }
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("The {0} value {1} is outside the range of the UInt32 type.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    The Int32 value -2147483648 is outside the range of the UInt32 type. 
//    The Int32 value -1203 is outside the range of the UInt32 type. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 0 to the UInt32 value 0. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 121 to the UInt32 value 121. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 1340 to the UInt32 value 1340. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 2147483647 to the UInt32 value 2147483647.
