The following example converts an array of Int64 values to Boolean values.

Dim numbers() As Long = { Int64.MinValue, -2016493, -689, 0, 6121, _
                          403890774, Int64.MaxValue }
Dim result As Boolean

For Each number As Long In numbers
   result = Convert.ToBoolean(number)                                 
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-26:N0}  -->  {1}", number, result)
Next
