BigInteger Constructor (UInt64)

Initializes a new instance of the BigInteger structure with an unsigned 64-bit integer value.

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

Namespace:  System.Numerics
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Numerics (in System.Runtime.Numerics.dll)

public BigInteger(
	ulong value


Type: System.UInt64

An unsigned 64-bit integer.

There is no loss of precision when instantiating a BigInteger using this constructor.

The BigInteger value that results from calling this constructor is identical to the value that results from assigning a UInt64 value to a BigInteger.

The following example uses the BigInteger(UInt64) constructor to instantiate a BigInteger object whose value is equal to MaxValue.

ulong unsignedValue = UInt64.MaxValue;
BigInteger number = new BigInteger(unsignedValue);
// The example displays the following output: 
//       18,446,744,073,709,551,615
