Convert.ToSByte Method (UInt32)

Converts the value of the specified 32-bit unsigned integer to an equivalent 8-bit signed integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Extensions (in System.Runtime.Extensions.dll)
  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static sbyte ToSByte(
	uint value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt32

The 32-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.SByte
An 8-bit signed integer that is equivalent to value.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than SByte.MaxValue or less than SByte.MinValue.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an integer array to a signed byte.

uint[] numbers = { UInt32.MinValue, 121, 340, UInt32.MaxValue };
sbyte result;

foreach (uint number in numbers)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToSByte(number);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to the {2} value {3}.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number,
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   }
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("The {0} value {1} is outside the range of the SByte type.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    Converted the UInt32 value 0 to the SByte value 0. 
//    Converted the UInt32 value 121 to the SByte value 121. 
//    The UInt32 value 340 is outside the range of the SByte type. 
//    The UInt32 value 4294967295 is outside the range of the SByte type.
