UInt16.MaxValue Field

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

Represents the largest possible value of UInt16. This field is constant.

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

public const ushort MaxValue

The value of this constant is 65535; that is, hexadecimal 0xFFFF.

The following example uses the MaxValue and MinValue properties to ensure that an Int32 value is in the range of the UInt16 type before converting it to a UInt16 value. This prevents the conversion operation from throwing an OverflowException if the integer value is not in the range of the UInt16 type.


int integerValue = 1216;
ushort uIntegerValue;

if (integerValue >= ushort.MinValue & integerValue <= ushort.MaxValue)
{
   uIntegerValue = (ushort)integerValue;
   outputBlock.Text += uIntegerValue + "\n";
}
else
{
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Unable to convert {0} to a UInt16t.", integerValue) + "\n";
}
