Remarks

The SByte value type represents integers with values ranging from negative 128 to positive 127.

Important

The SByte type is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative type is Int16. Byte can be used instead to replace a positive SByte value that ranges from zero to MaxValue. For more information about CLS compliance, see Language Independence and Language-Independent Components.

SByte provides methods to compare instances of this type, convert the value of an instance to its string representation, and convert the string representation of a number to an instance of this type.

For information about how format specification codes control the string representation of value types, see Formatting Types.

Fields

MaxValue MaxValue MaxValue

Represents the largest possible value of SByte. This field is constant.

MinValue MinValue MinValue

Represents the smallest possible value of SByte. This field is constant.

Thread Safety

All members of this type are thread safe. Members that appear to modify instance state actually return a new instance initialized with the new value. As with any other type, reading and writing to a shared variable that contains an instance of this type must be protected by a lock to guarantee thread safety.
