Decimal.op_Implicit Method (Char)

Converts a Unicode character to a Decimal.

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

public:
static implicit operator Decimal (
	wchar_t value
)
J# supports the use of custom casts, but not the declaration of new ones.
JScript supports the use of custom casts, but not the declaration of new ones.

Parameters

value

A Unicode character.

Return Value

A Decimal that represents the converted Unicode character.

The following code example converts Char values (Unicode characters) to Decimal numbers using the Char to Decimal conversion. This conversion is implicit in C#, but requires the op_Implicit operator in Visual Basic and C++. Implicit conversions to Decimal use other methods in these languages.

// Example of the op_Implicit conversion from __wchar_t to Decimal.
using namespace System;
#define formatter "{0,10}{1,15}{2,10:X8}{3,9:X8}{4,9:X8}{5,9:X8}"

// Convert the __wchar_t argument and display the Decimal value.
void DecimalFromChar( __wchar_t argument )
{
   Decimal decValue;
   array<Int32>^bits;
   
   // The compiler invokes a constructor in the Managed Extensions 
   // for C++ unless op_Implicit is explicitly called.
   decValue = argument;
   
   // Display the Decimal and its binary representation.
   bits = Decimal::GetBits( decValue );
   Console::WriteLine( formatter, argument, decValue, bits[ 3 ], bits[ 2 ], bits[ 1 ], bits[ 0 ] );
}

int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "This example of the op_Implicit conversion from "
   "__wchar_t to Decimal \ngenerates the following output. "
   "It displays the Decimal value and \nits binary "
   "representation.\n" );
   Console::WriteLine( formatter, "__wchar_t", "Decimal value", "bits[3]", "bits[2]", "bits[1]", "bits[0]" );
   Console::WriteLine( formatter, "---------", "-------------", "-------", "-------", "-------", "-------" );
   
   // Convert __wchar_t values and display the results.
   DecimalFromChar( L'\0' );
   DecimalFromChar( L' ' );
   DecimalFromChar( L'*' );
   DecimalFromChar( L'A' );
   DecimalFromChar( L'a' );
   DecimalFromChar( L'{' );
   DecimalFromChar( L'' );
}
