Complex Widening Conversion (Int16 to Complex)

Defines an implicit conversion of a 16-bit signed integer to a complex number.

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

Public Shared Widening Operator CType ( _
	value As Short _
) As Complex


Type: System.Int16
The value to convert to a complex number.

Return Value

Type: System.Numerics.Complex
An object that contains the value of the value parameter as its real part and zero as its imaginary part.

The overloads of the Widening operator define the types from which a compiler can automatically convert a Complex object 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 signed 16-bit integer to a complex number, as the following example shows. Note that the result of the conversion is a complex number whose real part is equal to the signed 16-bit integer and whose imaginary part is equal to zero.

Dim shortValue As Short = 16024
Dim c1 As System.Numerics.Complex = shortValue
outputBlock.Text &= c1.ToString() + vbCrLf
' The example displays the following output:
'       (16024, 0)
