Converts the value of the specified double-precision floating-point number to an equivalent 32-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

Public Shared Function ToUInt32 (
	value As Double
) As UInteger

Parameters

value
Type: System.Double

The double-precision floating-point number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt32

value, rounded to the nearest 32-bit unsigned 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 less than zero or greater than UInt32.MaxValue.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an array of Double values to an unsigned integer.

Dim values() As Double = { Double.MinValue, -1.38e10, -1023.299, -12.98, _
                           0, 9.113e-16, 103.919, 17834.191, Double.MaxValue }
Dim result As UInteger

For Each value As Double In values
   Try
      result = Convert.ToUInt32(value)
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.", _
                        value.GetType().Name, value, _
                        result.GetType().Name, result)
   Catch e As OverflowException
      Console.WriteLine("The {0} value {1} is outside the range of the UInt32 type.", _
                        value.GetType().Name, value)
   End Try   
Next         
' The example displays the following output:                        
'    The Double value -1.79769313486232E+308 is outside the range of the UInt32 type.
'    The Double value -13800000000 is outside the range of the UInt32 type.
'    The Double value -1023.299 is outside the range of the UInt32 type.
'    The Double value -12.98 is outside the range of the UInt32 type.
'    Converted the Double value '0' to the UInt32 value 0.
'    Converted the Double value '9.113E-16' to the UInt32 value 0.
'    Converted the Double value '103.919' to the UInt32 value 104.
'    Converted the Double value '17834.191' to the UInt32 value 17834.
'    The Double value 1.79769313486232E+308 is outside the range of the UInt32 type.
