Convert.ToInt32 Method (Single)

Converts the value of the specified single-precision floating-point number to an equivalent 32-bit signed integer.

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

public static int ToInt32(
	float value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Single
The single-precision floating-point number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
value, rounded to the nearest 32-bit signed integer. If value is halfway between two whole numbers, the even number is returned; that is, 4.5 is converted to 4, and 5.5 is converted to 6.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than Int32.MaxValue or less than Int32.MinValue.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an array of Single values to an integer.


float[] values= { Single.MinValue, -1.38e10f, -1023.299f, -12.98f,
                  0f, 9.113e-16f, 103.919f, 17834.191f, Single.MaxValue };
int result;

foreach (float value in values)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToInt32(value);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to the {2} value {3}.",
                        value.GetType().Name, value, result.GetType().Name, result);
   }
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("{0} is outside the range of the Int32 type.", value);
   }   
}                                 
// The example displays the following output:
//    -3.40282346638529E+38 is outside the range of the Int32 type.
//    -13799999488 is outside the range of the Int32 type.
//    Converted the Double value -1023.29901123047 to the Int32 value -1023.
//    Converted the Double value -12.9799995422363 to the Int32 value -13.
//    Converted the Double value 0 to the Int32 value 0.
//    Converted the Double value 9.11299983940444E-16 to the Int32 value 0.
//    Converted the Double value 103.918998718262 to the Int32 value 104.
//    Converted the Double value 17834.19140625 to the Int32 value 17834.
//    3.40282346638529E+38 is outside the range of the Int32 type.
