ConvertToBoolean Method
 

Converts the value of the specified 8-bit unsigned integer to an equivalent Boolean value.

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

public static bool ToBoolean(
	byte value
)
public:
static bool ToBoolean(
	unsigned char value
)
static member ToBoolean : 
        value:byte -> bool
Public Shared Function ToBoolean (
	value As Byte
) As Boolean

Parameters

value
Type:

The 8-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type:

true if value is not zero; otherwise, false.

The following example converts an array of Byte values to Boolean values.

byte[] bytes = { Byte.MinValue, 100, 200, Byte.MaxValue };
bool result;

foreach (byte byteValue in bytes)
{
   result = Convert.ToBoolean(byteValue); 
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-5}  -->  {1}", byteValue, result);
}           
// The example displays the following output:
//       0      -->  False
//       100    -->  True
//       200    -->  True
//       255    -->  True
Dim bytes() As Byte = { Byte.MinValue, 100, 200, Byte.MaxValue }
Dim result As Boolean

For Each byteValue As Byte In bytes
   result = Convert.ToBoolean(byteValue) 
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-5}  -->  {1}", byteValue, result)
Next           
' The example displays the following output:
'       0      -->  False
'       100    -->  True
'       200    -->  True
'       255    -->  True
array<Byte>^ bytes = gcnew array<Byte> { Byte::MinValue, 100, 200, Byte::MaxValue };
bool result;

for each (Byte byteValue in bytes)
{
   result = Convert::ToBoolean(byteValue); 
   Console::WriteLine("{0,-5}  -->  {1}", byteValue, result);
}           
// The example displays the following output:
//       0      -->  False
//       100    -->  True
//       200    -->  True
//       255    -->  True
