BigInteger Widening Conversion (UInt32 to BigInteger)

Defines an implicit conversion of a 32-bit unsigned integer to a BigInteger value.

This API is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative is Widening.

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

'Declaration
Public Shared Widening Operator CType ( _
	value As UInteger _
) As BigInteger

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt32

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 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 UInt32 value to a BigInteger value, as the following example shows.

Dim uIntegerValue As UInteger = 65000
Dim number As BigInteger = uIntegerValue
number = BigInteger.Multiply(number, uIntegerValue)
Console.WriteLine(number = uIntegerValue)           ' Displays False
