Decimal.ToUInt16 Method

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

This API is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative is ToInt32.

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ushort ToUInt16(
	decimal value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Decimal

The decimal number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt16
A 16-bit unsigned integer equivalent to the value of value.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than UInt16.MaxValue or less than UInt16.MinValue.

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

The following example uses the ToUInt16 method to convert decimal numbers to UInt16 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 {
            ushort number = Decimal.ToUInt16(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 
//     65535.999 --> 65535 
//     OverflowException: 65536 
//     32767.999 --> 32767 
//     32768 --> 32768 
//     -0.999 --> 0 
//     OverflowException: -1 
//     OverflowException: -32768.999 
//     OverflowException: -32769
