Byte.MinValue Field

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Represents the smallest possible value of a Byte. This field is constant.

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

Public Const MinValue As Byte
public const byte MinValue

Remarks

The value of this constant is 0.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the MinValue field to screen variable inputs for values that are outside the range of possible byte values.

      Public Sub MinMaxFields(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock, ByVal numberToSet As Integer)
         If numberToSet <= CInt([Byte].MaxValue) And numberToSet >= CInt([Byte].MinValue) Then
            ' You must explicitly convert an integer to a byte.
            MemberByte = CType(numberToSet, [Byte])

            ' Displays MemberByte using the ToString() method.
            outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The MemberByte value is {0}.", MemberByte.ToString()) & vbCrLf
         Else
            outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The value {0} is outside of the range of possible Byte values.", numberToSet.ToString()) & vbCrLf
         End If
      End Sub 'MinMaxFields
public void MinMaxFields(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, int numberToSet)
{
   if (numberToSet <= (int)Byte.MaxValue && numberToSet >= (int)Byte.MinValue)
   {
      // You must explicitly convert an integer to a byte.
      MemberByte = (Byte)numberToSet;

      // Displays MemberByte using the ToString() method.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The MemberByte value is {0}", MemberByte.ToString()) + "\n";
   }
   else
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The value {0} is outside of the range of possible Byte values", numberToSet.ToString()) + "\n";
   }
}
