public static uint ToUInt32(
	char value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Char

The Unicode character to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt32

A 32-bit unsigned integer that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in a character array to an unsigned integer.

char[] chars = { 'a', 'z', '\u0007', '\u03FF',
                 '\u7FFF', '\uFFFE' };
uint result;

foreach (char ch in chars)
{
   result = Convert.ToUInt32(ch);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.",
                     ch.GetType().Name, ch,
                     result.GetType().Name, result);
}   
// The example displays the following output:
//    Converted the Char value 'a' to the UInt32 value 97.
//    Converted the Char value 'z' to the UInt32 value 122.
//    Converted the Char value '' to the UInt32 value 7.
//    Converted the Char value '?' to the UInt32 value 1023.
//    Converted the Char value '?' to the UInt32 value 32767.
//    Converted the Char value '?' to the UInt32 value 65534.
