Byte.MaxValue Field

July 28, 2014

Represents the largest possible value of a Byte. This field is constant.

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

public const byte MaxValue

The value of this constant is 255 (hexadecimal 0xFF).

The following example demonstrates how to use the MaxValue field to screen variable inputs for values that are outside the range of possible byte values.


public void MinMaxFields(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, int numberToSet)
{
   if (numberToSet <= (int)Byte.MaxValue && numberToSet >= (int)Byte.MinValue)
   {
      // You must explicitly convert an integer to a byte.
      MemberByte = (Byte)numberToSet;

      // Displays MemberByte using the ToString() method.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The MemberByte value is {0}", MemberByte.ToString()) + "\n";
   }
   else
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The value {0} is outside of the range of possible Byte values", numberToSet.ToString()) + "\n";
   }
}
