Important

This API is not CLS-compliant.

Returns a 64-bit unsigned integer converted from eight bytes at a specified position in a byte array.

public:
 static System::UInt64 ToUInt64(cli::array <System::Byte> ^ value, int startIndex);
[System.CLSCompliant(false)]
public static ulong ToUInt64 (byte[] value, int startIndex);
static member ToUInt64 : byte[] * int -> uint64
Public Shared Function ToUInt64 (value As Byte(), startIndex As Integer) As ULong

Parameters

value
Byte[]

An array of bytes.

startIndex
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The starting position within value.

Returns

A 64-bit unsigned integer formed by the 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 UInt64 values with the ToUInt64 method.

// Example of the BitConverter::ToUInt64 method.
using namespace System;

// Convert eight byte array elements to an unsigned __int64 value and 
// display it.

{
   unsigned __int64 value = BitConverter::ToUInt64( 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.

{
   const int rowSize = 20;
   int iter;
   Console::WriteLine( "initial unsigned char array" );

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

   }

Remarks

The ToUInt64 method converts the bytes from index startIndex to startIndex + 7 to a UInt64 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.
