Converts the value of the specified 8-bit unsigned integer to the equivalent single-precision floating point number.

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

public static float ToSingle(
	byte value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Byte
An 8-bit unsigned integer.

Return Value

Type: System.Single
The single-precision floating point number equivalent to the value of value.

The following code sample illustrates the conversion of a Byte to Single, using ToSingle.


public void ConvertByteSingle(byte byteVal)
{
   float floatVal;

   // Byte to float conversion will not overflow.
   floatVal = System.Convert.ToSingle(byteVal);
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The byte as a float is {0}.",
      floatVal) + "\n";

   // Float to byte conversion can overflow.
   try
   {
      byteVal = System.Convert.ToByte(floatVal);
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The float as a byte is {0}.",
         byteVal) + "\n";
   }
   catch (System.OverflowException)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
         "The float value is too large for a byte.") + "\n";
   }
}
