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

public static bool ToBoolean(
	float value


Type: System.Single

The single-precision floating-point number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if value is not zero; otherwise, false.

The following example converts an array of Single values to Boolean values.

float[] numbers = { Single.MinValue, -193.0012f, 20e-15f, 0f, 
                    10551e-10f, 100.3398f, Single.MaxValue };
bool result;

foreach (float number in numbers)
   result = Convert.ToBoolean(number);                                 
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-15}  -->  {1}", number, result);
// The example displays the following output:
//       -3.402823E+38    -->  True
//       -193.0012        -->  True
//       2E-14            -->  True
//       0                -->  False
//       1.0551E-06       -->  True
//       100.3398         -->  True
//       3.402823E+38     -->  True
