Convert.ToUInt32 Method (Decimal)

 

Converts the value of the specified decimal number to an equivalent 32-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static uint ToUInt32(
	decimal value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Decimal

The decimal number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt32

value, rounded to the nearest 32-bit unsigned integer. If value is halfway between two whole numbers, the even number is returned; that is, 4.5 is converted to 4, and 5.5 is converted to 6.

Exception Condition
OverflowException

value is less than zero or greater than UInt32.MaxValue.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an array of Decimal values to an unsigned integer.

decimal[] values= { Decimal.MinValue, -1034.23m, -12m, 0m, 147m,
                    199.55m, 9214.16m, Decimal.MaxValue };
uint result;

foreach (decimal value in values)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToUInt32(value);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.",
                        value.GetType().Name, value,
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   }
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("The {0} value {1} is outside the range of the UInt32 type.",
                        value.GetType().Name, value);
   }   
}                                  
// The example displays the following output:
//    The Decimal value -79228162514264337593543950335 is outside the range of the UInt32 type.
//    The Decimal value -1034.23 is outside the range of the UInt32 type.
//    The Decimal value -12 is outside the range of the UInt32 type.
//    Converted the Decimal value '0' to the UInt32 value 0.
//    Converted the Decimal value '147' to the UInt32 value 147.
//    Converted the Decimal value '199.55' to the UInt32 value 200.
//    Converted the Decimal value '9214.16' to the UInt32 value 9214.
//    The Decimal value 79228162514264337593543950335 is outside the range of the UInt32 type.
