Decimal Implicit Conversion (UInt32 to Decimal)

Converts a 32-bit unsigned integer to a Decimal.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Shared Widening Operator CType ( _
    value As UInteger _
) As Decimal
public static implicit operator decimal (
    uint value
)

Parameters

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal that represents the converted 32-bit unsigned integer.

Examples

The following code example converts UInt32 values to Decimal numbers using the UInt32 to Decimal conversion. This conversion is implicit in C#, but requires the op_Implicit operator in Visual Basic and C++. Implicit conversions to Decimal use other methods in these languages.

' Example of the op_Implicit conversion from UInt32 to Decimal.
Imports System.Globalization

Module Example

   Const formatter As String = _
       "{0,15}{1,15}{2,10:X8}{3,9:X8}{4,9:X8}{5,9:X8}"

   ' Convert the UInt32 argument and display the Decimal value.
   Sub DecimalFromUInt32(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock, ByVal argument As UInt32)

      Dim decValue As Decimal
      Dim bits() As Integer

      ' The compiler invokes a constructor in Visual Basic 
      ' unless op_Implicit is explicitly called.
      decValue = Decimal.op_Implicit(argument)

      ' Display the Decimal and its binary representation.
      bits = Decimal.GetBits(decValue)
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(formatter, argument, decValue, _
          bits(3), bits(2), bits(1), bits(0)) & vbCrLf
   End Sub
