Convert.ToInt64 Method (Single)

.NET Framework (current version)

Converts the value of the specified single-precision floating-point number to an equivalent 64-bit signed integer.

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

Syntax

```public static long ToInt64(
float value
)
```

Parameters

value
Type: System.Single

The single-precision floating-point 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.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
OverflowException

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

Examples

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

```float[] values= { Single.MinValue, -1.38e10f, -1023.299f, -12.98f,
0f, 9.113e-16f, 103.919f, 17834.191f, Single.MaxValue };
long result;

foreach (float 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:
//    -3.40282346638529E+38 is outside the range of the Int64 type.
//    -13799999488 is outside the range of the Int64 type.
//    Converted the Double value -1023.29901123047 to the Int64 value -1023.
//    Converted the Double value -12.9799995422363 to the Int64 value -13.
//    Converted the Double value 0 to the Int64 value 0.
//    Converted the Double value 9.11299983940444E-16 to the Int64 value 0.
//    Converted the Double value 103.918998718262 to the Int64 value 104.
//    Converted the Double value 17834.19140625 to the Int64 value 17834.
//    3.40282346638529E+38 is outside the range of the Int64 type.
