Convert.ToUInt16 Method (Int32)

Converts the value of the specified 32-bit signed integer to an equivalent 16-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ushort ToUInt16(
	int value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32
The 32-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt16
A 16-bit unsigned integer that is equivalent to value.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is less than zero or greater than UInt16.MaxValue.

The following example converts each element in an integer array to an unsigned 16-bit integer.


int[] numbers = { Int32.MinValue, -1, 0, 121, 340, Int32.MaxValue };
ushort result;

foreach (int number in numbers)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToUInt16(number);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.", 
                        number.GetType().Name, number, 
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   }                     
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("The {0} value {1} is outside the range of the UInt16 type.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//    The Int32 value -2147483648 is outside the range of the UInt16 type.
//    The Int32 value -1 is outside the range of the UInt16 type.
//    Converted the Int32 value '0' to the UInt16 value 0.
//    Converted the Int32 value '121' to the UInt16 value 121.
//    Converted the Int32 value '340' to the UInt16 value 340.
//    The Int32 value 2147483647 is outside the range of the UInt16 type.
