Decimal Implicit Conversion (Byte to Decimal)

Defines an explicit conversion of an 8-bit unsigned integer to a Decimal.

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

static implicit operator Decimal (
	unsigned char value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::Byte

The 8-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System::Decimal
The converted 8-bit unsigned integer.

The overloads of the Implicit method define the types from which the compiler can automatically convert a Decimal value without an explicit casting operator (in C#) or a call to a conversion function (in Visual Basic). They are widening conversions that do not involve data loss and do not throw an OverflowException exception.

The following example converts Byte values to Decimal numbers.

using namespace System;

void main()
{
    // Define an array of byte values. 
    array<Byte>^ values = { Byte::MinValue, Byte::MaxValue, 
                            0x3F, 123, 200 };   
    // Convert each value to a Decimal. 
    for each (Byte value in values) {
        Decimal decValue = value;
        Console::WriteLine("{0} ({1}) --> {2} ({3})", value,
                             value.GetType()->Name, decValue,
                             decValue.GetType()->Name);         
    }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//       0 (Byte) --> 0 (Decimal) 
//       255 (Byte) --> 255 (Decimal) 
//       63 (Byte) --> 63 (Decimal) 
//       123 (Byte) --> 123 (Decimal) 
//       200 (Byte) --> 200 (Decimal)
