Public Structure Int16

The Int16 type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodEqualsIndicates whether this instance and a specified object are equal. (Inherited from ValueType.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberParseConverts the string representation of a number to its 16-bit signed integer equivalent.
Public methodToString()()()()Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation. (Overrides Object..::..ToString()()()().)
Public methodToString(String)Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation, using the specified format.

  NameDescription
Public fieldStatic memberMaxValueRepresents the largest possible value of an Int16. This field is constant.
Public fieldStatic memberMinValueRepresents the smallest possible value of Int16. This field is constant.

The Int16 value type represents signed integers with values ranging from negative 32768 through positive 32767.

This type provides methods to convert the value of an instance of this type to its string representation, convert the string representation of a number to an instance of this type, and compare instances of this type.

All members of this type are thread safe. Members that appear to modify instance state actually return a new instance initialized with the new value. As with any other type, reading and writing to a shared variable that contains an instance of this type must be protected by a lock to guarantee thread safety.
