public static float ToSingle(
	int value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32
The 32-bit signed 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 integer array to a Single value.


int[] numbers = { Int32.MinValue, -1000, 0, 1000, Int32.MaxValue };
float result;

foreach (int 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 Int32 value '-2147483648' to the Single value -2.147484E+09.
//    Converted the Int32 value '-1000' to the Single value -1000.
//    Converted the Int32 value '0' to the Single value 0.
//    Converted the Int32 value '1000' to the Single value 1000.
//    Converted the Int32 value '2147483647' to the Single value 2.147484E+09.
