# Decimal.ToInt32 Method

.NET Framework 2.0

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

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

## Syntax

```'Declaration
Public Shared Function ToInt32 ( _
d As Decimal _
) As Integer
'Usage
Dim d As Decimal
Dim returnValue As Integer

returnValue = Decimal.ToInt32(d)
```
```public static int ToInt32 (
Decimal d
)
```
```public static function ToInt32 (
d : decimal
) : int
```

#### Parameters

d

The Decimal value to convert.

#### Return Value

A 32-bit signed integer equivalent to the value of d.

## Exceptions

Exception typeCondition

OverflowException

d is less than Int32.MinValue or greater than Int32.MaxValue.

## Remarks

The return value is the integral part of the decimal value; fractional digits are truncated.

## Example

The following code example converts Decimal numbers to Int32 values using the ToInt32 method.
