Implicit Numeric Conversions Table

The following table shows the predefined implicit numeric conversions. Implicit conversions might occur in many situations, including method invoking and assignment statements.

From To
sbyte short, int, long, float, double, or decimal
byte short, ushort, int, uint, long, ulong, float, double, or decimal
short int, long, float, double, or decimal
ushort int, uint, long, ulong, float, double, or decimal
int long, float, double, or decimal
uint long, ulong, float, double, or decimal
long float, double, or decimal
char ushort, int, uint, long, ulong, float, double, or decimal
float double
ulong float, double, or decimal

Remarks

  • The conversions from int, uint, or long to float and from long to double may cause a loss of precision, but not a loss of magnitude.
  • There are no implicit conversions to the char type.
  • There are no implicit conversions between floating-point types and the decimal type.
  • A constant expression of type int can be converted to sbyte, byte, short, ushort, uint, or ulong, provided the value of the constant expression is within the range of the destination type.
