Convert.ToSingle Method (Int16)

 

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

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

public static float ToSingle(
	short value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int16

The 16-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 array of 16-bit integers to a Single value.

short[] numbers = { Int16.MinValue, -1032, 0, 192, Int16.MaxValue };
float result;

foreach (short 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 Int16 value '-32768' to the Single value -32768.
//    Converted the Int16 value '-1032' to the Single value -1032.
//    Converted the Int16 value '0' to the Single value 0.
//    Converted the Int16 value '192' to the Single value 192.
//    Converted the Int16 value '32767' to the Single value 32767.
