BigInteger Implicit Conversion (Int32 to BigInteger)

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

Namespace:  System.Numerics
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Numerics (in System.Runtime.Numerics.dll)
  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

public static implicit operator BigInteger (
	int value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32

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 Implicit 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 an Int32 value to a BigInteger value, as the following example shows.

int intValue = 65000;
BigInteger number = intValue;
number = BigInteger.Multiply(number, intValue);
Console.WriteLine(number == intValue);            // Displays False
