Convert.ToSingle Method (UInt16)

Converts the value of the specified 16-bit unsigned integer to the equivalent single-precision floating-point number.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static float ToSingle(
	ushort value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt16

The 16-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Single
A single-precision floating-point number that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of unsigned 16-bit integers to a Single value.

ushort[] numbers = { UInt16.MinValue, 121, 12345, UInt16.MaxValue };
float result;

foreach (ushort number in numbers)
{
   result = Convert.ToSingle(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 UInt16 value '0' to the Single value 0. 
//    Converted the UInt16 value '121' to the Single value 121. 
//    Converted the UInt16 value '12345' to the Single value 12345. 
//    Converted the UInt16 value '65535' to the Single value 65535.
