DoubleToInt64Bits Method

BitConverter.DoubleToInt64Bits Method

Converts the specified double-precision floating point number to a 64-bit signed integer.

Namespace:  System
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Extensions (in System.Runtime.Extensions.dll)
  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static long DoubleToInt64Bits(
	double value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Double

The number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int64
A 64-bit signed integer whose value is equivalent to value.

The order of bits in the integer returned by the DoubleToInt64Bits method depends on whether the computer architecture is little-endian or big-endian.

The following code example converts the bit patterns of several Double values to Int64 values with the DoubleToInt64Bits method.

// Example of the BitConverter.DoubleToInt64Bits method. 
using System;

class DoubleToInt64BitsDemo
{
    const string formatter = "{0,25:E16}{1,23:X16}";

    // Reinterpret the double argument as a long. 
    public static void DoubleToLongBits( double argument )
    {
        long longValue;
        longValue = BitConverter.DoubleToInt64Bits( argument );

        // Display the resulting long in hexadecimal.
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, argument, longValue );
    }

    public static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( 
            "This example of the BitConverter.DoubleToInt64Bits( " +
            "double ) \nmethod generates the following output.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "double argument", 
            "hexadecimal value" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "---------------", 
            "-----------------" );

        DoubleToLongBits( 15.0 );
