Decimal Implicit Conversion (Int16 to Decimal)

Converts a 16-bit signed integer to a Decimal.

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

public static implicit operator decimal (
	short value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int16
A 16-bit signed integer.

Return Value

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

The following code example converts Int16 values to Decimal numbers using the Int16 to Decimal conversion. This conversion is implicit in C#, but requires the op_Implicit operator in Visual Basic and C++. Implicit conversions to Decimal use other methods in these languages.


// Example of the implicit conversion from short to decimal.
using System;

class Example
{
   const string formatter =
       "{0,15}{1,15}{2,10:X8}{3,9:X8}{4,9:X8}{5,9:X8}";

   // Convert the short argument and display the decimal value.
   public static void DecimalFromInt16(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, short argument)
   {
      decimal decValue;
      int[] bits;

      // Display the decimal and its binary representation.
      decValue = argument;
      bits = decimal.GetBits(decValue);

      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(formatter, argument, decValue,
          bits[3], bits[2], bits[1], bits[0]) + "\n";
   }

   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
          "This example of the implicit conversion from short " +
          "to decimal generates the \nfollowing output. It " +
          "displays the decimal value and its binary " +
          "representation.\n") + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(formatter, "short argument",
          "decimal value", "bits[3]", "bits[2]",
          "bits[1]", "bits[0]") + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(formatter, "--------------",
          "-------------", "-------", "-------",
          "-------", "-------") + "\n";

      // Convert short values and display the results.
      DecimalFromInt16(outputBlock, short.MinValue);
      DecimalFromInt16(outputBlock, short.MaxValue);
      DecimalFromInt16(outputBlock, 0xFFF);
      DecimalFromInt16(outputBlock, 12345);
      DecimalFromInt16(outputBlock, -10000);
   }
}
