[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Converts to and from base64-encoded strings.

**Namespace:**System

**Assembly:**mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

The Convert type exposes the following members.

Name | Description | |
---|---|---|

FromBase64CharArray | Converts a subset of a Unicode character array, which encodes binary data as base-64 digits, to an equivalent 8-bit unsigned integer array. Parameters specify the subset in the input array and the number of elements to convert. | |

FromBase64String | Converts the specified string, which encodes binary data as base-64 digits, to an equivalent 8-bit unsigned integer array. | |

ToBase64String(array<Byte>[]()[][]) | Converts an array of 8-bit unsigned integers to its equivalent string representation that is encoded with base-64 digits. | |

ToBase64String(array<Byte>[]()[][], Int32, Int32) | Converts a subset of an array of 8-bit unsigned integers to its equivalent string representation that is encoded with base-64 digits. Parameters specify the subset as an offset in the input array, and the number of elements in the array to convert. | |

ToByte | Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 8-bit unsigned integer. | |

ToChar | Converts the value of the specified 16-bit unsigned integer to its equivalent Unicode character. | |

ToDouble | Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent double-precision floating-point number. | |

ToInt16 | Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 16-bit signed integer. | |

ToInt32(String) | Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 32-bit signed integer. | |

ToInt32(String, Int32) | Converts the string representation of a number in a specified base to an equivalent 32-bit signed integer. | |

ToInt64 | Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 64-bit signed integer. | |

ToSByte | Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 8-bit signed integer. | |

ToUInt16 | Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 16-bit unsigned integer. | |

ToUInt32 | Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 32-bit unsigned integer. | |

ToUInt64 | Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 64-bit unsigned integer. |
