# Convert.ToInt64 Method (Double)

Visual Studio 2010

Converts the value of the specified double-precision floating-point number to an equivalent 64-bit signed integer.

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

## Syntax

```public static long ToInt64(
double value
)
```

#### Parameters

value
Type: System.Double
The double-precision floating-point number to convert.

#### Return Value

Type: System.Int64
value, rounded to the nearest 64-bit signed 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.

## Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than Int64.MaxValue or less than Int64.MinValue.

## Examples

The following example attempts to convert each element in an array of Double values to a long integer.

```
double[] values= { Double.MinValue, -1.38e10, -1023.299, -12.98,
0, 9.113e-16, 103.919, 17834.191, Double.MaxValue };
long result;

foreach (double value in values)
{
try {
result = Convert.ToInt64(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("{0} is outside the range of the Int64 type.", value);
}
}
//    -1.79769313486232E+308 is outside the range of the Int64 type.
//    -13800000000 is outside the range of the Int16 type.
//    Converted the Double value '-1023.299' to the Int64 value -1023.
//    Converted the Double value '-12.98' to the Int64 value -13.
//    Converted the Double value '0' to the Int64 value 0.
//    Converted the Double value '9.113E-16' to the Int64 value 0.
//    Converted the Double value '103.919' to the Int64 value 104.
//    Converted the Double value '17834.191' to the Int64 value 17834.
//    1.79769313486232E+308 is outside the range of the Int64 type.
