Convert.ToUInt16 Method (Double)

 

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

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ushort ToUInt16(
	double value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Double

The double-precision floating-point number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt16

value, rounded to the nearest 16-bit unsigned integer. If value is halfway between two whole numbers, the even number is returned; that is, 4.5 is converted to 4, and 5.5 is converted to 6.

Exception Condition
OverflowException

value is less than zero or greater than UInt16.MaxValue.

The following example converts each element in an array of Double values to an unsigned 16-bit integer.

double[] numbers = { Double.MinValue, -1.38e10, -1023.299, -12.98,
                    0, 9.113e-16, 103.919, 17834.191, Double.MaxValue };
ushort result;

foreach (double number in numbers)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToUInt16(number);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.", 
                        number.GetType().Name, number, 
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   }   
   catch (OverflowException)
   {
      Console.WriteLine("{0} is outside the range of the UInt16 type.", number);
   }   
}                                 
// The example displays the following output:
//    -1.79769313486232E+308 is outside the range of the UInt16 type.
//    -13800000000 is outside the range of the UInt16 type.
//    -1023.299 is outside the range of the UInt16 type.
//    -12.98 is outside the range of the UInt16 type.
//    Converted the Double value '0' to the UInt16 value 0.
//    Converted the Double value '9.113E-16' to the UInt16 value 0.
//    Converted the Double value '103.919' to the UInt16 value 104.
//    Converted the Double value '17834.191' to the UInt16 value 17834.
//    1.79769313486232E+308 is outside the range of the UInt16 type.
