Int16 to Decimal Conversion

.NET Framework 1.1

Converts a 16-bit signed integer to a Decimal.

[Visual Basic]
returnValue = Decimal.op_Implicit(value)
[C#]
public static implicit operator decimal(
 short value
);
[C++]
public: static Decimal op_Implicit(
 short value
);
[JScript]
returnValue = value;

[Visual Basic] In Visual Basic, you can use the conversion operators defined by a type, but you cannot define your own.

[JScript] In JScript, you can use the conversion operators defined by a type, but you cannot define your own.

Arguments [Visual Basic, JScript]

value
A 16-bit signed integer.

Parameters [C#, C++]

value
A 16-bit signed integer.

Return Value

A Decimal that represents the converted 16-bit signed integer.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following code example converts Int16 values to Decimal numbers using the Int16 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.
