'Declaration
Public Shared Function ToSingle ( _
	value As Short _
) As Single

Parameters

value

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.

Dim numbers() As Short = { Int16.MinValue, -1032, 0, 192, Int16.MaxValue }
Dim result As Single 

For Each number As Short 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.
