This converter can convert only an 8-bit unsigned integer object to and from a string.

The SByte value type represents integers with values ranging from negative 128 to positive 127. This data type is not supported in Visual Basic.


You should never create an instance of SByteConverter. Instead, call the GetConverter method of TypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the TypeConverter base class and How to: Implement a Type Converter.

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this class has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

The following sample converts a variable of type SByte to a string, and vice versa.

sbyte mySByte=+121;
string mySByteStr="-100";
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(mySByte).ConvertTo(mySByte, typeof(string))); 

byte mySByte = +121;
String mySByteStr = "-100";
    ConvertTo((System.Byte)mySByte, String.class.ToType()));

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
