Decimal Implicit Conversion (SByte to Decimal)

Defines an explicit conversion of an 8-bit signed integer to a Decimal.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

public static implicit operator decimal (
	sbyte value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.SByte

The 8-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The converted 8-bit signed integer.

The overloads of the Implicit method define the types from which the compiler can automatically convert a Decimal value without an explicit casting operator (in C#) or a call to a conversion function (in Visual Basic). They are widening conversions that do not involve data loss and do not throw an OverflowException exception.

The following code example converts SByte values to Decimal numbers.

using System;

class Example
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        // Define an array of 8-bit signed integer values. 
        sbyte[] values = { sbyte.MinValue, sbyte.MaxValue,     
                           0x3F, 123, -100 };
        // Convert each value to a Decimal. 
        foreach (var value in values) {
           Decimal decValue = value;
           Console.WriteLine("{0} ({1}) --> {2} ({3})", value,
                             value.GetType().Name, decValue,
                             decValue.GetType().Name);         
        }
    }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    -128 (SByte) --> -128 (Decimal) 
//    127 (SByte) --> 127 (Decimal) 
//    63 (SByte) --> 63 (Decimal) 
//    123 (SByte) --> 123 (Decimal) 
//    -100 (SByte) --> -100 (Decimal)
