public static double ToDouble(
	uint value


Type: System.UInt32

The 32-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Double

A double-precision floating-point number that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of UInt32 values to a Double value.

uint[] numbers = { UInt32.MinValue, 121, 12345, UInt32.MaxValue };
double result;

foreach (uint number in numbers)
   result = Convert.ToDouble(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the UInt32 value {0} to {1}.",
                     number, result);
// The example displays the following output:
//       Converted the UInt32 value 0 to 0.
//       Converted the UInt32 value 121 to 121.
//       Converted the UInt32 value 12345 to 12345.
//       Converted the UInt32 value 4294967295 to 4294967295.
