'Declaration
<CLSCompliantAttribute(False)> _
Public Shared Function ToSingle ( _
	value As UInteger _
) As Single

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt32

The 32-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Single
A single-precision floating-point number that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of unsigned integers to a Single value.

   Dim numbers() As UInteger = { UInt32.MinValue, 121, 12345, UInt32.MaxValue }
   Dim result As Single 

   For Each number As UInteger In numbers
      result = Convert.ToSingle(number)
         Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.", _
                           number.GetType().Name, number, _
                           result.GetType().Name, result)
   Next    
   ' The example displays the following output: 
'    Converted the UInt32 value '0' to the Single value 0. 
'    Converted the UInt32 value '121' to the Single value 121. 
'    Converted the UInt32 value '12345' to the Single value 12345. 
'    Converted the UInt32 value '4294967295' to the Single value 4.294967E+09.
