public static double ToDouble (byte[] value, int startIndex);
static member ToDouble : byte[] * int -> double
Public Shared Function ToDouble (value As Byte(), startIndex As Integer) As Double

Parameters

value
Byte[]

An array of bytes.

startIndex
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The starting position within value.

Returns

A double precision floating point number formed by eight bytes beginning at startIndex.

Exceptions

startIndex is greater than or equal to the length of value minus 7, and is less than or equal to the length of value minus 1.

startIndex is less than zero or greater than the length of value minus 1.

Examples

The following code example converts elements of Byte arrays to Double values with the ToDouble method.

   Console::WriteLine( "{0,5}{1,27}{2,27:E16}", index, BitConverter::ToString( bytes, index, 8 ), value );
}


// Display a byte array, using multiple lines if necessary.

Remarks

The ToDouble method converts the bytes from index startIndex to startIndex + 7 to a Double value. The order of bytes in the array must reflect the endianness of the computer system's architecture; for more information, see the Remarks section of the BitConverter class topic.
