8.11 The checked and unchecked statements

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The checked and unchecked statements are used to control the overflow checking context for integral-type arithmetic operations and conversions.

checked-statement:
checked   block
unchecked-statement:
unchecked   block

The checked statement causes all expressions in the block to be evaluated in a checked context, and the unchecked statement causes all expressions in the block to be evaluated in an unchecked context.

The checked and unchecked statements are precisely equivalent to the checked and unchecked operators (Section 7.5.12), except that they operate on blocks instead of expressions.
