Converts the value of the specified 16-bit signed integer to an equivalent double-precision floating-point number.

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

public static double ToDouble(
	short value


Type: System.Int16

The 16-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Double

A double-precision floating-point number equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of 16-bit signed integers to a Double value.

short[] numbers = { Int16.MinValue, -1032, 0, 192, Int16.MaxValue };
double result;

foreach (short number in numbers)
   result = Convert.ToDouble(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the UInt16 value {0} to {1}.",
                     number, result);
//       Converted the UInt16 value -32768 to -32768.
//       Converted the UInt16 value -1032 to -1032.
//       Converted the UInt16 value 0 to 0.
//       Converted the UInt16 value 192 to 192.
//       Converted the UInt16 value 32767 to 32767.
