Decimal Constructor (UInt32)

Decimal Constructor (UInt32)

Initializes a new instance of Decimal to the value of the specified 32-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public Decimal(
	uint value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt32

The value to represent as a Decimal.

The following code example creates several Decimal numbers using the constructor overload that initializes a Decimal structure with a UInt32 value.

// Example of the decimal( uint ) constructor. 
using System;

class DecimalCtorUIDemo
{
    // Create a decimal object and display its value. 
    public static void CreateDecimal( uint value, string valToStr )
    {
        decimal decimalNum = new decimal( value );

        // Format the constructor for display. 
        string ctor = String.Format( "decimal( {0} )", valToStr );

        // Display the constructor and its value.
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,16}", ctor, decimalNum );
    }

    public static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( "This example of the decimal( uint ) " +
            "constructor \ngenerates the following output.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,16}", "Constructor", "Value" );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,16}", "-----------", "-----" );

        // Construct decimal objects from uint values.
        CreateDecimal( uint.MinValue, "uint.MinValue" );
        CreateDecimal( uint.MaxValue, "uint.MaxValue" );
        CreateDecimal( (uint)int.MaxValue, "(uint)int.MaxValue" );
        CreateDecimal( 999999999U, "999999999U" );
        CreateDecimal( 0x40000000U, "0x40000000U" );
        CreateDecimal( 0xC0000000, "0xC0000000" );
    }
}
