BigInteger Implicit Conversion (SByte to BigInteger)

 
clsCompliantAlternativeM:System.Numerics.BigInteger.#ctor(System.Int32)equivalentCodeEntityM:System.Numerics.BigInteger.#ctor(System.Int32)

Defines an implicit conversion of an 8-bit signed integer to a BigInteger value.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

public static implicit operator BigInteger (
	sbyte value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.SByte

The value to convert to a BigInteger.

Return Value

Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

An object that contains the value of the value parameter.

The overloads of the Implicit(Byte to BigInteger) method define the types from which a compiler can automatically convert a BigInteger 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. This overload lets the compiler handle conversions from an SByte value to a BigInteger value, as the following example shows.

sbyte sByteValue = -12;
BigInteger number = BigInteger.Pow(sByteValue, 3);
Console.WriteLine(number < sByteValue);            // Displays True
