Byte.MinValue Field

Represents the smallest possible value of a Byte. This field is constant.

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

public const byte MinValue
public static final byte MinValue
public const var MinValue : byte
Not applicable.

The value of this constant is 0.

The following example demonstrates how to use the MinValue field to screen variable inputs for values that are outside the range of possible byte values.

public void MinMaxFields(int numberToSet)
{
   if(numberToSet <= (int)Byte.MaxValue && numberToSet >= (int)Byte.MinValue)
   {
      // You must explicitly convert an integer to a byte.
      MemberByte = (Byte)numberToSet;

      // Displays MemberByte using the ToString() method.
      Console.WriteLine("The MemberByte value is {0}", MemberByte.ToString());
   }
   else
   {
      Console.WriteLine("The value {0} is outside of the range of possible Byte values", numberToSet.ToString());
   }
}

public void MinMaxFields(int numberToSet)
{
    if (numberToSet <= (int)(System.Byte.MaxValue) 
            && numberToSet >= (int)(System.Byte.MinValue)) {
        // You must explicitly convert an integer to a byte.
        memberByte = ((ubyte)(numberToSet));

        // Displays MemberByte using the ToString() method.
        Console.WriteLine("The memberByte value is {0}", 
        System.Convert.ToString(memberByte));
    }
    else {
        Console.WriteLine("The value {0} is outside of the range of "
            + "possible Byte values", (Int32)numberToSet);
    }
} //MinMaxFields
