Definition

Important

This API is not CLS-compliant.

CLS-compliant alternative
System.Decimal.ToInt64(Decimal)

public:
 static System::UInt32 ToUInt32(System::Decimal d);
[System.CLSCompliant(false)]
public static uint ToUInt32 (decimal d);
static member ToUInt32 : decimal -> uint32
Public Shared Function ToUInt32 (d As Decimal) As UInteger

Parameters

d
Decimal Decimal Decimal Decimal

The decimal number to convert.

Returns

A 32-bit unsigned integer equivalent to the value of d.

Exceptions

Examples

The following example uses the ToUInt32 method to convert decimal numbers to UInt32 values.

using System;

class Example
{
   public static void Main( )
   {
      decimal[] values = { 123m, new decimal(123000, 0, 0, false, 3), 
                           123.999m, 4294967295.999m, 4294967296m,
                           4294967296m, 2147483647.999m, 2147483648m, 
                           -0.999m, -1m, -2147483648.999m, -2147483649m };

      foreach (var value in values) {
         try {
            uint number = Decimal.ToUInt32(value);
            Console.WriteLine("{0} --> {1}", value, number);       
         }
         catch (OverflowException e)
         {
             Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", e.GetType().Name, value);
         }   
      }
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//     123 --> 123
//     123.000 --> 123
//     123.999 --> 123

//     OverflowException: 4294967296
//     2147483647.999 --> 2147483647
//     2147483648 --> 2147483648
//     -0.999 --> 0
//     OverflowException: -1
//     OverflowException: -2147483648.999
//     OverflowException: -2147483649
Module Example

      For Each value In values
         Try
            Dim number As UInteger = Decimal.ToUInt32(value)
            Console.WriteLine("{0} --> {1}", value, number)       
         Catch e As OverflowException
             Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", e.GetType().Name, value)
         End Try   
      Next
   End Sub

Remarks

The return value is the integral part of the decimal value; fractional digits are truncated.

You can also convert a Decimal value to an 32-bit unsigned integer by using the Explicit assignment operator. Because the operator performs a narrowing conversion, you must use a casting operator in C# or a conversion function in Visual Basic.
