Convert.ToUInt16 Method (UInt32)

Converts the value of the specified 32-bit unsigned integer to an equivalent 16-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ushort ToUInt16(
	uint value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt32

The 32-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt16
A 16-bit unsigned integer that is equivalent to value.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than UInt16.MaxValue.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an array of unsigned integers to an unsigned 16-bit integer.

uint[] numbers = { UInt32.MinValue, 121, 340, UInt32.MaxValue };
ushort result;

foreach (uint number in numbers)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToUInt16(number);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.", 
                        number.GetType().Name, number, 
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   }
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("The {0} value {1} is outside the range of the UInt16 type.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    Converted the UInt32 value '0' to the UInt16 value 0. 
//    Converted the UInt32 value '121' to the UInt16 value 121. 
//    Converted the UInt32 value '340' to the UInt16 value 340. 
//    The UInt32 value 4294967295 is outside the range of the UInt16 type.
