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

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

public static short ToInt16(
	decimal value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Decimal

The decimal number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int16

A 16-bit signed integer equivalent to value.

value is less than Int16.MinValue or greater than Int16.MaxValue.

The following example uses the ToInt16 method to convert decimal numbers to Int16 values.

using System;

class Example
{
   public static void Main( )
   {
      decimal[] values = { 123m, new Decimal(123000, 0, 0, false, 3),
                           123.999m, 65535.999m, 65536m,             
                           32767.999m, 32768m, -0.999m,              
                           -1m,  -32768.999m, -32769m };

      foreach (var value in values) {
         try {
            short number = Decimal.ToInt16(value);
            Console.WriteLine("{0} --> {1}", value, number);       
         }
         catch (OverflowException e)
         {
             Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", e.GetType().Name, value);
         }   
      }
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//     123 --> 123
//     123.000 --> 123
//     123.999 --> 123
//     OverflowException: 65535.999
//     OverflowException: 65536
//     32767.999 --> 32767
//     OverflowException: 32768
//     -0.999 --> 0
//     -1 --> -1
//     -32768.999 --> -32768
//     OverflowException: -32769
