The following example converts an array of Int32 values to Boolean values.

int[] numbers = { Int32.MinValue, -201649, -68, 0, 612, 4038907, 
                  Int32.MaxValue };
bool result;

foreach (int number in numbers)
{
   result = Convert.ToBoolean(number);                                 
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-15:N0}  -->  {1}", number, result);
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       -2,147,483,648   -->  True
//       -201,649         -->  True
//       -68              -->  True
//       0                -->  False
//       612              -->  True
//       4,038,907        -->  True
//       2,147,483,647    -->  True
