Return Value

Returns SByte.

This method returns a type safe value of a parameter. The method checks the underlying data type of the parameter and if the type is not the same as the one requested, or if there is not a mapping, the method returns an error that the conversion failed.

If this returns any error, all the bits of the output value are set to zero or to the empty string, and the value of paramValue is set to false. A non-zero value has a Boolean value of true and a value of zero has a Boolean value of false.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
