Convert.ToDouble Method (Int64)

Converts the value of the specified 64-bit signed integer to an equivalent double-precision floating-point number.

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

public static double ToDouble(
	long value


Type: System.Int64

The 64-bit signed 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 signed long integers to a Double value.

long[] numbers = { Int64.MinValue, -903, 0, 172, Int64.MaxValue};
double result;

foreach (long number in numbers)
   result = Convert.ToDouble(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.", 
                     number.GetType().Name, number, 
                     result.GetType().Name, result);
// The example displays the following output: 
//    Converted the Int64 value '-9223372036854775808' to the Double value -9.22337203685478E+18. 
//    Converted the Int64 value '-903' to the Double value -903. 
//    Converted the Int64 value '0' to the Double value 0. 
//    Converted the Int64 value '172' to the Double value 172. 
//    Converted the Int64 value '9223372036854775807' to the Double value 9.22337203685478E+18.
