Convert.ToSingle Method (Byte)

 

Converts the value of the specified 8-bit unsigned integer to the equivalent single-precision floating-point number.

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

public static float ToSingle(
	byte value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Byte

The 8-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Single

A single-precision floating-point number that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of byte values to a Single value.

byte[] numbers = { Byte.MinValue, 10, 100, Byte.MaxValue };
float result;

foreach (byte number in numbers)
{
   result = Convert.ToSingle(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to the {2} value {3}.",
                     number.GetType().Name, number,
                     result.GetType().Name, result);
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       Converted the Byte value 0 to the Single value 0.
//       Converted the Byte value 10 to the Single value 10.
//       Converted the Byte value 100 to the Single value 100.
//       Converted the Byte value 255 to the Single value 255.
