Converts the value of the specified 8-bit signed 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(
	sbyte value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.SByte

The 8-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Single

An 8-bit signed integer that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in a signed byte array to a Single value.

sbyte[] numbers = { SByte.MinValue, -23, 0, 17, SByte.MaxValue };
float result;

foreach (sbyte 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 SByte value '-128' to the Single value -128.
//    Converted the SByte value '-23' to the Single value -23.
//    Converted the SByte value '0' to the Single value 0.
//    Converted the SByte value '17' to the Single value 17.
//    Converted the SByte value '127' to the Single value 127.
