public static double ToDouble(
	ulong value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt64

The 64-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Double
A double-precision floating-point number that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of UInt64 values to a Double value.

ulong[] numbers = { UInt64.MinValue, 121, 12345, UInt64.MaxValue };
double result;

foreach (ulong number in numbers)
{
   result = Convert.ToDouble(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the UInt64 value {0} to {1}.",
                     number, result);
}   
// The example displays the following output: 
//    Converted the UInt64 value 0 to 0. 
//    Converted the UInt64 value 121 to 121. 
//    Converted the UInt64 value 12345 to 12345. 
//    Converted the UInt64 value 18446744073709551615 to 1.84467440737096E+19.
