The bitwise complement operator
~ is a unary operator that produces a bitwise complement of its operand by reversing each bit. All integer types support the

The following example demonstrates the usage of the
uint a = 0b_0000_1111_0000_1111_0000_1111_0000_1100; uint b = ~a; Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(b, toBase: 2)); // Output: // 11110000111100001111000011110011
