Decimal.Decimal(Int32) Constructor

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
)
public Decimal (
	int value
)
public function Decimal (
	value : int
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

value

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 DecimalCtorIDemo
{
    // Create a decimal object and display its value.
    public static void CreateDecimal( 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.
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-30}{1,16}", ctor, decimalNum );
    }
    
    public static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( "This example of the decimal( int ) " +
            "constructor \ngenerates the following output.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-30}{1,16}", "Constructor", "Value" );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-30}{1,16}", "-----------", "-----" );

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