Decimal.ToInt64 Method

Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 64-bit signed integer.

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

public static long ToInt64(
	decimal d
)

Parameters

d
Type: System.Decimal
The Decimal value to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int64
A 64-bit signed integer equivalent to the value of d.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

d is less than Int64.MinValue or greater than Int64.MaxValue.

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

The following code example converts Decimal numbers to Int64 values using the ToInt64 method.


// Example of the decimal.ToInt64 and decimal.ToUInt64 methods.
using System;

class Example
{
   const string formatter = "{0,25}{1,22}{2,22}";

   // Get the exception type name; remove the namespace prefix.

      string exceptionType = ex.GetType().ToString();
      return exceptionType.Substring(
          exceptionType.LastIndexOf('.') + 1);
   }

   // Convert the decimal argument; catch exceptions that are thrown.
