Implicit Conversion (UInt16 to Decimal)

Decimal Implicit Conversion (UInt16 to Decimal)


Defines an implicit conversion of a 16-bit unsigned integer to a Decimal.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

static operator Decimal (
	unsigned short value


Type: System::UInt16

The 16-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System::Decimal

The converted 16-bit unsigned 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 example converts UInt16 values to Decimal numbers.

using namespace System;

void main()
     // Define an array of 16-bit unsigned integer values.
     array<UInt16>^ values = { UInt16::MinValue, UInt16::MaxValue,     
                               0xFFF, 12345, 40000 };
     // Convert each value to a Decimal.
     for each (UInt16 value in values) {
        Decimal decValue = value;
        Console::WriteLine("{0} ({1}) --> {2} ({3})", value,
                           value.GetType()->Name, decValue,
// The example displays the following output:
//       0 (UInt16) --> 0 (Decimal)
//       65535 (UInt16) --> 65535 (Decimal)
//       4095 (UInt16) --> 4095 (Decimal)
//       12345 (UInt16) --> 12345 (Decimal)
//       40000 (UInt16) --> 40000 (Decimal)
