The following example converts an array of UInt16 values to Boolean values.

ushort[] numbers = { UInt16.MinValue, 216, 21453, UInt16.MaxValue };
bool result;

foreach (ushort number in numbers)
   result = Convert.ToBoolean(number);                                 
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-7:N0}  -->  {1}", number, result);
// The example displays the following output:
//       0        -->  False
//       216      -->  True
//       21,453   -->  True
