Decimal Widening Conversion (UInt32 to Decimal)

Defines an explicit conversion of a 32-bit unsigned integer to a Decimal.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

Public Shared Widening Operator CType ( _
	value As UInteger _
) As Decimal


Type: System.UInt32

The 32-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The converted 32-bit unsigned integer.

The overloads of the Widening method define the types from which the compiler can automatically convert a Decimal value without an explicit casting operator (in C#) or a call to a conversion function (in Visual Basic). They are widening conversions that do not involve data loss and do not throw an OverflowException exception.

The following example converts UInt32 values to Decimal numbers.

Module Example
    Public Sub Main()
        ' Define an array of 32-bit unsigned integer values. 
        Dim values() As UInteger = { UInteger.MinValue, UInteger.MaxValue, 
                                     &hFFFFFF, 123456789, 4000000000 }
        For Each value In values
           Dim decValue As Decimal = value
           Console.WriteLine("{0} ({1}) --> {2} ({3})", value,
                             value.GetType().Name, decValue,
    End Sub  
End Module 
' The example displays the following output: 
'       0 (UInt32) --> 0 (Decimal) 
'       4294967295 (UInt32) --> 4294967295 (Decimal) 
'       16777215 (UInt32) --> 16777215 (Decimal) 
'       123456789 (UInt32) --> 123456789 (Decimal) 
'       4000000000 (UInt32) --> 4000000000 (Decimal)
