Decimal Implicit Conversion (Int32 to Decimal)


Defines an implicit conversion of a 32-bit signed integer to a Decimal.

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

static operator Decimal (
	int value


Type: System::Int32

The 32-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System::Decimal

The converted 32-bit signed 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 Int32 values to Decimal numbers.

using namespace System;

void main()
    // Define an array of 32-bit integer values.
    array<Int32>^ values = { Int32::MinValue, Int32::MaxValue, 
                             0xFFFFFF, 123456789, -1000000000 };
    // Convert each value to a Decimal.
    for each (Int32 value in values) {
        Decimal decValue = value;
        Console::WriteLine("{0} ({1}) --> {2} ({3})", value,
                          value.GetType()->Name, decValue,
// The example displays the following output:
//    -2147483648 (Int32) --> -2147483648 (Decimal)
//    2147483647 (Int32) --> 2147483647 (Decimal)
//    16777215 (Int32) --> 16777215 (Decimal)
//    123456789 (Int32) --> 123456789 (Decimal)
//    -1000000000 (Int32) --> -1000000000 (Decimal)
