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

Dim numbers() As UShort = { UInt16.MinValue, 216, 21453, UInt16.MaxValue }
Dim result As Boolean

For Each number As UShort In numbers
   result = Convert.ToBoolean(number)                                 
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-7:N0}  -->  {1}", number, result)
