Convert.ToInt64 Method (Single)

July 28, 2014

Converts the value of the specified single-precision floating point number to an equivalent 64-bit signed integer.

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

public static long ToInt64(
	float value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Single
A single-precision floating point number.

Return Value

Type: System.Int64
value rounded to the nearest 64-bit signed integer. If value is halfway between two whole numbers, the even number is returned; that is, 4.5 is converted to 4, and 5.5 is converted to 6.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than Int64.MaxValue or less than Int64.MinValue.

The following code sample illustrates the conversion of a Single value to an Int64, using ToInt64.


public void ConvertLongFloat(long longVal)
{
   float floatVal;

   // A conversion from Long to float cannot overflow.
   floatVal = System.Convert.ToSingle(longVal);
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} as a float is {1}",
         longVal, floatVal) + "\n";

   // A conversion from float to long can overflow.
   try
   {
      longVal = System.Convert.ToInt64(floatVal);
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} as a long is {1}",
         floatVal, longVal) + "\n";
   }
   catch (System.OverflowException)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
         "Overflow in float-to-long conversion.") + "\n";
   }
}
