Decimal Explicit Conversion (Decimal to UInt16)

Defines an explicit conversion of a Decimal to a 16-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

public static explicit operator ushort (
	decimal value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Decimal

The value to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt16
A 16-bit unsigned integer that represents the converted Decimal.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

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

This operator supports the explicit conversion of a Decimal to a UInt16. The syntax for such explicit conversions is language-dependent, and individual language compilers can provide different implementations and return different results. The example illustrates the different return values when you explicitly convert a Decimal value to a UInt16 value by using C# and Visual Basic. To perform a conversion that is independent of language, you can call the ToUInt16 or the Convert.ToUInt16(Decimal) method.

The following example converts Decimal numbers to UInt16 values by using the explicit Decimal to UInt16 conversion.

// Example of the explicit conversions from decimal to short and  
// decimal to ushort. 
using System;

class DecimalToU_Int16Demo
{
    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( decimal argument )
    {
        object Int16Value;
        object UInt16Value;

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

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

        Console.WriteLine( formatter, argument, 
            Int16Value, UInt16Value );
    }

    public static void Main( )

            "following output. It displays \nseveral converted " +
            "decimal values.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "decimal argument", 
            "short/exception", "ushort/exception" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "----------------", 
            "---------------", "----------------" );

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