ToUInt16 Method (SByte)

Convert.ToUInt16 Method (SByte)

Converts the value of the specified 8-bit signed integer to the equivalent 16-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Extensions (in System.Runtime.Extensions.dll)
  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

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

Parameters

value
Type: System.SByte

The 8-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

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

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is less than zero.

The following example converts each element in a signed byte array to an unsigned 16-bit integer.

sbyte[] numbers = { SByte.MinValue, -1, 0, 10, SByte.MaxValue };
ushort result;

foreach (sbyte 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("{0} is outside the range of the UInt16 type.", number);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    -128 is outside the range of the UInt16 type. 
//    -1 is outside the range of the UInt16 type. 
//    Converted the SByte value '0' to the UInt16 value 0. 
//    Converted the SByte value '10' to the UInt16 value 10. 
//    Converted the SByte value '127' to the UInt16 value 127.
