   // Double to bool conversion cannot overflow.
   boolVal = System.Convert.ToBoolean(doubleVal);
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} as a Boolean is: {1}.",
      doubleVal, boolVal) + "\n";

   // bool to double conversion cannot overflow.
   doubleVal = System.Convert.ToDouble(boolVal);
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} as a double is: {1}.",
      boolVal, doubleVal) + "\n";
