Implicit Conversion (Byte to BigInteger)

BigInteger Implicit Conversion (Byte to BigInteger)

Defines an implicit conversion of an unsigned byte 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 (
	byte value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Byte

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

byte byteValue = 254;
BigInteger number = byteValue;
number = BigInteger.Add(number, byteValue);
Console.WriteLine(number > byteValue);            // Displays True
