Public Shared Function ToUInt64 (
	value As Decimal
) As ULong

Parameters

value
Type: System.Decimal

The decimal number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt64

value, rounded to the nearest 64-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 UInt64.MaxValue.

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

Dim values() As Decimal = { Decimal.MinValue, -1034.23d, -12d, 0d, 147d, _
                            199.55d, 9214.16d, Decimal.MaxValue }
Dim result As ULong

For Each value As Decimal In values
   Try
      result = Convert.ToUInt64(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 UInt64 type.", _
                        value.GetType().Name, value)
   End Try   
Next                                  
' The example displays the following output:
'    The Decimal value -79228162514264337593543950335 is outside the range of the UInt64 type.
'    The Decimal value -1034.23 is outside the range of the UInt64 type.
'    The Decimal value -12 is outside the range of the UInt64 type.
'    Converted the Decimal value '0' to the UInt64 value 0.
'    Converted the Decimal value '147' to the UInt64 value 147.
'    Converted the Decimal value '199.55' to the UInt64 value 200.
'    Converted the Decimal value '9214.16' to the UInt64 value 9214.
'    The Decimal value 79228162514264337593543950335 is outside the range of the UInt64 type.
