Decimal.ToUInt32 Method

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

This API is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative is ToInt64.

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static uint ToUInt32(
	decimal d
)

Parameters

d
Type: System.Decimal

The decimal number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt32
A 32-bit unsigned integer equivalent to the value of d.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

d is negative or greater than UInt32.MaxValue.

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

The following example uses the ToUInt32 method to convert decimal numbers to UInt32 values.

using System;

class Example
{
   public static void Main( )
   {
      decimal[] values = { 123m, new decimal(123000, 0, 0, false, 3), 
                           123.999m, 4294967295.999m, 4294967296m,
                           4294967296m, 2147483647.999m, 2147483648m, 
                           -0.999m, -1m, -2147483648.999m, -2147483649m };

      foreach (var value in values) {
         try {
            uint number = Decimal.ToUInt32(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 
//     4294967295.999 --> 4294967295 
//     OverflowException: 4294967296 
//     OverflowException: 4294967296 
//     2147483647.999 --> 2147483647 
//     2147483648 --> 2147483648 
//     -0.999 --> 0 
//     OverflowException: -1 
//     OverflowException: -2147483648.999 
//     OverflowException: -2147483649
