Int32 Structure

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Represents a 32-bit signed integer.

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

public struct Int32

The Int32 type exposes the following members.

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 32-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.

Public fieldStatic memberMaxValueRepresents the largest possible value of an Int32. This field is constant.
Public fieldStatic memberMinValueRepresents the smallest possible value of Int32. This field is constant.

Int32 is an immutable value type that represents signed integers with values that range from negative 2,147,483,648 (which is represented by the Int32..::..MinValue constant) through positive 2,147,483,647 (which is represented by the Int32..::..MaxValue constant. The .NET Framework also includes an unsigned 32-bit integer value type, UInt32, which represents values that range from 0 to 4,294,967,295.

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.
