Convert.ToSingle Method (Int64)

 

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

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

public static float ToSingle(
	long value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int64

The 64-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Single

A single-precision floating-point number that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of long integers to a Single value.

long[] numbers = { Int64.MinValue, -903, 0, 172, Int64.MaxValue};
double result;

foreach (long number in numbers)
{
   result = Convert.ToDouble(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.", 
                     number.GetType().Name, number, 
                     result.GetType().Name, result);

}
// The example displays the following output:
//    Converted the Int64 value '-9223372036854775808' to the Single value -9.223372E+18.
//    Converted the Int64 value '-903' to the Single value -903.
//    Converted the Int64 value '0' to the Single value 0.
//    Converted the Int64 value '172' to the Single value 172.
//    Converted the Int64 value '9223372036854775807' to the Single value 9.223372E+18.
