The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Initializes a new instance of Decimal to the value of the specified 64-bit signed integer.

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

public:
Decimal(
	long long value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::Int64

The value to represent as a Decimal.

The following code example creates several Decimal numbers using the constructor overload that initializes a Decimal structure with an Int64 value.

// Example of the Decimal( __int64 ) constructor.
using namespace System;

// Create a Decimal object and display its value.
void CreateDecimal( __int64 value, String^ valToStr )
{
   Decimal decimalNum = Decimal(value);

   // Format the constructor for display.
   String^ ctor = String::Format( "Decimal( {0} )", valToStr );

   // Display the constructor and its value.
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,-35}{1,22}", ctor, decimalNum );
}

int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "This example of the Decimal( __int64 ) "
   "constructor \ngenerates the following output.\n" );
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,-35}{1,22}", "Constructor", "Value" );
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,-35}{1,22}", "-----------", "-----" );

   // Construct Decimal objects from __int64 values.
   CreateDecimal( Int64::MinValue, "Int64::MinValue" );
   CreateDecimal( Int64::MaxValue, "Int64::MaxValue" );
   CreateDecimal( 0, "0" );
   CreateDecimal( 999999999999999999, "999999999999999999" );
   CreateDecimal( 0x2000000000000000, "0x2000000000000000" );
   CreateDecimal( 0xE000000000000000, "0xE000000000000000" );
}
