# Decimal Constructor (Int32)

Visual Studio 2010

Initializes a new instance of Decimal to the value of the specified 32-bit signed integer.

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

## Syntax

```public Decimal(
int value
)
```

#### Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32
The value to represent as a Decimal.

## Examples

The following code example creates several Decimal numbers using the constructor overload that initializes a Decimal structure with an Int32 value.

```
// Example of the decimal( int ) constructor.
using System;

class DecimalCtorIDemo
{
// Create a decimal object and display its value.
public static void CreateDecimal( int value, string valToStr )
{
decimal decimalNum = new decimal( value );

// Format the constructor for display.
string ctor = String.Format( "decimal( {0} )", valToStr );

// Display the constructor and its value.
Console.WriteLine( "{0,-30}{1,16}", ctor, decimalNum );
}

public static void Main( )
{
Console.WriteLine( "This example of the decimal( int ) " +
"constructor \ngenerates the following output.\n" );
Console.WriteLine( "{0,-30}{1,16}", "Constructor", "Value" );
Console.WriteLine( "{0,-30}{1,16}", "-----------", "-----" );

// Construct decimal objects from int values.
CreateDecimal( int.MinValue, "int.MinValue" );
CreateDecimal( int.MaxValue, "int.MaxValue" );
CreateDecimal( 0, "0" );
CreateDecimal( 999999999, "999999999" );
CreateDecimal( 0x40000000, "0x40000000" );
CreateDecimal( unchecked( (int)0xC0000000 ),
"(int)0xC0000000" );
}
}
