Implicit Conversion (Int64 to Decimal)

Decimal Implicit Conversion (Int64 to Decimal)

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Converts a 64-bit signed integer to a Decimal.

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

public static implicit operator decimal (
	long value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int64
A 64-bit signed integer.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal that represents the converted 64-bit signed integer.

The following code example converts Int64 values to Decimal numbers using the Int64 to Decimal conversion. This conversion is implicit in C#, but requires the op_Implicit operator in Visual Basic and C++. Implicit conversions to Decimal use other methods in these languages.


// Example of the implicit conversion from long to decimal.
using System;

class Example
{
   const string formatter =
       "{0,20}{1,21}{2,10:X8}{3,9:X8}{4,9:X8}{5,9:X8}";

   // Convert the long argument and display the decimal value.
   public static void DecimalFromInt64(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, long argument)
   {
      decimal decValue;
      int[] bits;

      // Display the decimal and its binary representation.
      decValue = argument;
      bits = decimal.GetBits(decValue);

      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(formatter, argument, decValue,
          bits[3], bits[2], bits[1], bits[0]) + "\n";
   }

   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
          "This example of the implicit conversion from long " +
          "to decimal generates the \nfollowing output. It " +
          "displays the decimal value and its binary " +
          "representation.\n") + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(formatter, "long argument",
          "decimal value", "bits[3]", "bits[2]",
          "bits[1]", "bits[0]") + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(formatter, "-------------",
          "-------------", "-------", "-------",
          "-------", "-------") + "\n";

      // Convert long values and display the results.
      DecimalFromInt64(outputBlock, long.MinValue);
      DecimalFromInt64(outputBlock, long.MaxValue);
      DecimalFromInt64(outputBlock, 0xFFFFFFFFFFFF);
      DecimalFromInt64(outputBlock, 123456789123456789);
      DecimalFromInt64(outputBlock, -1000000000000000);
   }
