Decimal.ToUInt64 Method

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

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ulong ToUInt64(
	decimal d
)

Parameters

d
Type: System.Decimal

The decimal number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt64
A 64-bit unsigned integer equivalent to the value of d.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

d is negative or greater than UInt64.MaxValue.

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

The following example uses the ToUInt64 method to convert decimal numbers to UInt64 values.

using System;

class Example
{
   public static void Main( )
   {
      decimal[] values = { 123m, new Decimal(123000, 0, 0, false, 3), 
                           123.999m, 18446744073709551615.999m, 
                           18446744073709551616m, 9223372036854775807.999m, 
                           9223372036854775808m, -0.999m, -1m, 
                           -9223372036854775808.999m, 
                           -9223372036854775809m };

      foreach (var value in values) {
         try {             
            ulong number = Decimal.ToUInt64(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 
//     18446744073709551615.999 --> 18446744073709551615

//     9223372036854775808 --> 9223372036854775808 
//     -0.999 --> 0 
//     OverflowException: -1 
//     OverflowException: -9223372036854775808.999 
//     OverflowException: -9223372036854775809
