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

This API is not CLS-compliant.

public static int ToInt32(
	ushort value


Type: System.UInt16

The 16-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32

A 32-bit signed integer that is equivalent to value.

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

ushort[] numbers = { UInt16.MinValue, 121, 340, UInt16.MaxValue };
int result;
foreach (ushort number in numbers)
   try {
      result = Convert.ToInt32(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 Int32 type.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number);
// The example displays the following output:
//    Converted the UInt16 value 0 to the Int32 value 0.
//    Converted the UInt16 value 121 to the Int32 value 121.
//    Converted the UInt16 value 340 to the Int32 value 340.
//    Converted the UInt16 value 65535 to the Int32 value 65535.
