Convert.ToInt64 Method (Decimal)

 

Converts the value of the specified decimal number to an equivalent 64-bit signed integer.

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

public static long ToInt64(
	decimal value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Decimal

The decimal number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int64

value, rounded to the nearest 64-bit signed integer. If value is halfway between two whole numbers, the even number is returned; that is, 4.5 is converted to 4, and 5.5 is converted to 6.

Exception Condition
OverflowException

value is greater than Int64.MaxValue or less than Int64.MinValue.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an array of Decimal values to a long integer.

decimal[] values= { Decimal.MinValue, -1034.23m, -12m, 0m, 147m,
                    199.55m, 9214.16m, Decimal.MaxValue };
long result;

foreach (decimal value in values)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToInt64(value);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.",
                        value.GetType().Name, value,
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   }
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("{0} is outside the range of the Int64 type.",
                        value);
   }   
}                                  
// The example displays the following output:
//    -79228162514264337593543950335 is outside the range of the Int64 type.
//    Converted the Decimal value '-1034.23' to the Int64 value -1034.
//    Converted the Decimal value '-12' to the Int64 value -12.
//    Converted the Decimal value '0' to the Int64 value 0.
//    Converted the Decimal value '147' to the Int64 value 147.
//    Converted the Decimal value '199.55' to the Int64 value 200.
//    Converted the Decimal value '9214.16' to the Int64 value 9214.
//    79228162514264337593543950335 is outside the range of the Int64 type.
