Decimal Constructor (Int32)

Initializes a new instance of Decimal to the value of the specified 32-bit signed integer.

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

public Decimal(
	int value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32
The value to represent as a Decimal.

The following code example creates several Decimal numbers using the constructor overload that initializes a Decimal structure with an Int32 value.


// Example of the decimal( int ) constructor.
using System;

class Example
{
   // Create a decimal object and display its value.
   public static void CreateDecimal(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, int value, string valToStr)
   {
      decimal decimalNum = new decimal(value);

      // Format the constructor for display.
      string ctor = String.Format("decimal( {0} )", valToStr);

      // Display the constructor and its value.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0,-30}{1,16}", ctor, decimalNum) + "\n";
   }

   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += "This example of the decimal( int ) " +
          "constructor \ngenerates the following output.\n" + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0,-30}{1,16}", "Constructor", "Value") + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0,-30}{1,16}", "-----------", "-----") + "\n";

      // Construct decimal objects from int values.
      CreateDecimal(outputBlock, int.MinValue, "int.MinValue");
      CreateDecimal(outputBlock, int.MaxValue, "int.MaxValue");
      CreateDecimal(outputBlock, 0, "0");
      CreateDecimal(outputBlock, 999999999, "999999999");
      CreateDecimal(outputBlock, 0x40000000, "0x40000000");
      CreateDecimal(outputBlock, unchecked((int)0xC0000000),
          "(int)0xC0000000");
   }
}
