The 8-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int16
A 16-bit signed integer that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of Byte values to a 16-bit signed integer.

byte[] bytes = { Byte.MinValue, 14, 122, Byte.MaxValue};
short result;

foreach (byte byteValue in bytes)
{
   result = Convert.ToInt16(byteValue);
   Console.WriteLine("The Byte value {0} converts to {1}.",
                     byteValue, result);
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//       The Byte value 0 converts to 0. 
//       The Byte value 14 converts to 14. 
//       The Byte value 122 converts to 122. 
//       The Byte value 255 converts to 255.
