# Decimal.op_Implicit Method (Byte)

.NET Framework 2.0

Converts an 8-bit unsigned integer to a Decimal.

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

## Syntax

```public static implicit operator decimal (
byte value
)
```
```J# supports the use of custom casts, but not the declaration of new ones.
```
```JScript supports the use of custom casts, but not the declaration of new ones.
```

#### Parameters

value

An 8-bit unsigned integer.

#### Return Value

A Decimal that represents the converted 8-bit unsigned integer.

## Example

The following code example converts Byte values to Decimal numbers using the Byte to Decimal conversion. This conversion is implicit in C#, but requires the op_Implicit operator in Visual Basic and C++. Implicit conversions to Decimal use other methods in these languages.

```// Example of the implicit conversion from byte to decimal.
using System;

class DecimalFromByteDemo
{
const string formatter =
"{0,15}{1,15}{2,10:X8}{3,9:X8}{4,9:X8}{5,9:X8}";

// Convert the byte argument and display the decimal value.
public static void DecimalFromByte( byte argument )
{
decimal decValue;
int[ ]  bits;

// Display the decimal and its binary representation.
decValue = argument;
bits = decimal.GetBits( decValue );

Console.WriteLine( formatter, argument, decValue,
bits[ 3 ], bits[ 2 ], bits[ 1 ], bits[ 0 ] );
}

public static void Main( )
{
Console.WriteLine(
"This example of the implicit conversion from byte " +
"to decimal generates the \nfollowing output. It " +
"displays the decimal value and its binary " +
"representation.\n" );
Console.WriteLine( formatter, "byte argument",
"decimal value", "bits[3]", "bits[2]",
"bits[1]", "bits[0]" );
Console.WriteLine( formatter, "-------------",
"-------------", "-------", "-------",
"-------", "-------" );

// Convert byte values and display the results.
DecimalFromByte( byte.MinValue );
DecimalFromByte( byte.MaxValue );
DecimalFromByte( 0x3F );
DecimalFromByte( 123 );
DecimalFromByte( 200 );
}
}
