Decimal.ToInt64 Method

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

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

'Declaration
Public Shared Function ToInt64 ( _
	d As Decimal _
) As Long
'Usage
Dim d As Decimal
Dim returnValue As Long

returnValue = Decimal.ToInt64(d)
public static long ToInt64 (
	Decimal d
)
public static function ToInt64 (
	d : decimal
) : long

Parameters

d

The Decimal value to convert.

Return Value

A 64-bit signed integer equivalent to the value of d.

Exception typeCondition

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.
