UInt16 Structure

Represents a 16-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative is Int32.

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

[SerializableAttribute]
[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public struct UInt16 : IComparable, IFormattable, 
	IConvertible, IComparable<ushort>, IEquatable<ushort>

The UInt16 type exposes the following members.

The UInt16 value type represents unsigned integers with values ranging from 0 to 65535.

Important noteImportant

   The UInt16 type is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative type is Int32. Int16 can be used instead to replace a UInt16 value that ranges from zero to MaxValue. For more information about CLS compliance, see Language Independence and Language-Independent Components.

The UInt16 structure provides methods to compare instances of this type, convert the value of an instance to its string representation, and convert the string representation of a number to an instance of this type.

For information about how format specification codes control the string representation of value types, see Formatting Types in the .NET Framework.

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.
