Converts the value of the specified 8-bit signed integer to the equivalent 16-bit signed integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static short ToInt16(
	sbyte value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.SByte

The 8-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int16
A 8-bit signed integer that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of signed bytes to a 16-bit signed integer.

sbyte[] numbers = { SByte.MinValue, -1, 0, 10, SByte.MaxValue };
short result;

foreach (sbyte number in numbers)
{
   result = Convert.ToInt16(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to the {2} value {3}.",
                     number.GetType().Name, number,
                     result.GetType().Name, result);
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//       Converted the SByte value -128 to the Int16 value -128. 
//       Converted the SByte value -1 to the Int16 value -1. 
//       Converted the SByte value 0 to the Int16 value 0. 
//       Converted the SByte value 10 to the Int16 value 10. 
//       Converted the SByte value 127 to the Int16 value 127.
