Byte.MaxValue Field

Definition

Represents the largest possible value of a Byte. This field is constant.

public: System::Byte MaxValue = 255;
public const byte MaxValue = 255;
val mutable MaxValue : byte
Public Const MaxValue As Byte  = 255

Byte

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the MaxValue field to screen variable inputs for values that are outside the range of possible byte values.

public:
   void MinMaxFields( Int32 numberToSet )
   {
      if ( numberToSet <= (Int32)Byte::MaxValue && numberToSet >= (Int32)Byte::MinValue )
      {
         
         // You must explicitly convert an integer to a byte.
         MemberByte = (Byte)numberToSet;
         
         // Displays MemberByte using the ToString() method.
         Console::WriteLine(  "The MemberByte value is {0}", MemberByte.ToString() );
      }
      else
      {
         Console::WriteLine(  "The value {0} is outside of the range of possible Byte values", numberToSet.ToString() );
      }
   }
public void MinMaxFields(int numberToSet)
{
   if(numberToSet <= (int)Byte.MaxValue && numberToSet >= (int)Byte.MinValue)
   {
      // You must explicitly convert an integer to a byte.
      MemberByte = (Byte)numberToSet;

      // Displays MemberByte using the ToString() method.
      Console.WriteLine("The MemberByte value is {0}", MemberByte.ToString());
   }
   else
   {
      Console.WriteLine("The value {0} is outside of the range of possible Byte values", numberToSet.ToString());
   }
}
Public Sub MinMaxFields(ByVal numberToSet As Integer)
   If numberToSet <= CInt([Byte].MaxValue) And numberToSet >= CInt([Byte].MinValue) Then
      ' You must explicitly convert an integer to a byte.
      MemberByte = CType(numberToSet, [Byte])

      ' Displays MemberByte using the ToString() method.
      Console.WriteLine("The MemberByte value is {0}.", MemberByte.ToString())
   Else
      Console.WriteLine("The value {0} is outside of the range of possible Byte values.", numberToSet.ToString())
   End If
End Sub

Remarks

The value of this constant is 255 (hexadecimal 0xFF).
