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 Int64 values with the ToInt64 method.

// Example of the BitConverter::ToInt64 method.
using namespace System;

// Convert eight byte array elements to an __int64 and display it.
void BAToInt64( array<unsigned char>^bytes, int index )
{
   __int64 value = BitConverter::ToInt64( bytes, index );
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,5}{1,27}{2,24}", index, BitConverter::ToString( bytes, index, 8 ), value );
}


// Display a byte array, using multiple lines if necessary.
void WriteMultiLineByteArray( array<unsigned char>^bytes )
{
   const int rowSize = 20;
   int iter;
   Console::WriteLine( "initial unsigned char array" );
   Console::WriteLine( "---------------------------" );

   {
      Console::Write( BitConverter::ToString( bytes, iter, rowSize ) );
      Console::WriteLine( "-" );

   }
   Console::WriteLine( BitConverter::ToString( bytes, iter ) );
   Console::WriteLine();
}

Remarks

The ToInt64 method converts the bytes from index startIndex to startIndex + 7 to a Int64 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.
