Converts the value of the specified 16-bit unsigned integer to an equivalent Boolean value.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

public:
[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
static bool ToBoolean(
	unsigned short value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::UInt16

The 16-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if value is not zero; otherwise, false.

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

array<unsigned short>^ numbers = gcnew array<unsigned short> { UInt16::MinValue, 216, 21453, UInt16::MaxValue };
bool result;

for each (unsigned short 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
//       65,535   -->  True
