BigInteger Widening Conversion (UInt64 to BigInteger)

 
clsCompliantAlternativeT:System.DoubleequivalentCodeEntityM:System.Numerics.BigInteger.#ctor(System.UInt64)

Defines an implicit conversion of a 64-bit unsigned integer to a BigInteger value.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

Public Shared Widening Operator CType (
	value As ULong
) As BigInteger

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt64

The value to convert to a BigInteger.

Return Value

Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

An object that contains the value of the value parameter.

The overloads of the Widening(Byte to BigInteger) method define the types from which a compiler can automatically convert a BigInteger value without an explicit casting operator (in C#) or a call to a conversion function (in Visual Basic). They are widening conversions that do not involve data loss and do not throw an OverflowException. This overload lets the compiler handle conversions from a UInt64 value to a BigInteger value, as the following example shows.

Dim uLongValue As ULong = 1358754982
Dim number As BigInteger = uLongValue
number = number * 2 - uLongValue
Console.WriteLine(number * uLongValue / uLongValue)  ' Displays 1358754982
