The following example converts each element in an array of unsigned integers to a Char value.

uint[] numbers = { UInt32.MinValue, 40, 160, 255, 1028,
                   2011, 30001, 207154, Int32.MaxValue };
char result;
foreach (uint number in numbers)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToChar(number);
      Console.WriteLine("{0} converts to '{1}'.", number, result);
   }   
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("{0} is outside the range of the Char data type.",
                        number);
   }
}   
// The example displays the following output: 
//       0 converts to ' '. 
//       40 converts to '('. 
//       160 converts to ' '. 
//       255 converts to 'ÿ'. 
//       1028 converts to '?'. 
//       2011 converts to '?'. 
//       30001 converts to '?'. 
//       207154 is outside the range of the Char data type. 
//       2147483647 is outside the range of the Char data type.
