Represents the largest possible value of an Int16. This field is constant.

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

public const short MaxValue

The value of this constant is 32767; that is, hexadecimal 0x7FFF.

The MaxValue property is typically used to prevent an OverflowException when converting from a numeric type with a greater upper range (such as a UInt16 or a Int32) to an Int16. The example illustrates this usage.
