Represents the smallest possible value of UInt16. This field is constant.

This field is not CLS-compliant.  

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

public const ushort MinValue
public static final UInt16 MinValue
public const var MinValue : ushort
Not applicable.

The value of this constant is 0.

The following example uses the MinValue and MaxValue properties to ensure that an Int32 value is in the range of the UInt16 type before converting it to a UInt16 value. This prevents the conversion operation from throwing an OverflowException if the integer value is not in the range of the UInt16 type.
