[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ushort ToUInt16(
	char value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Char

The Unicode character to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt16
The 16-bit unsigned integer equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in a character array to an unsigned 16-bit integer.

char[] chars = { 'a', 'z', '\x0007', '\x03FF',
                 '\x7FFF', '\xFFFE' };
ushort result;

foreach (char ch in chars)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToUInt16(ch);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.", 
                        ch.GetType().Name, ch, 
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   }
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("Unable to convert u+{0} to a UInt16.",
                        ((int)ch).ToString("X4"));
   }
}   
// The example displays the following output: 
//    Converted the Char value 'a' to the UInt16 value 97. 
//    Converted the Char value 'z' to the UInt16 value 122. 
//    Converted the Char value '' to the UInt16 value 7. 
//    Converted the Char value '?' to the UInt16 value 1023. 
//    Converted the Char value '?' to the UInt16 value 32767. 
//    Converted the Char value '?' to the UInt16 value 65534.
