Convert.ToDouble Method (Byte)

Converts the value of the specified 8-bit unsigned integer to the equivalent double-precision floating point number.

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


Public Shared Function ToDouble ( _
    value As Byte _
) As Double
public static double ToDouble(
    byte value


Return Value

Type: System.Double
The double-precision floating point number equivalent to the value of value.


The following code sample illustrates the conversion of a Byte value to a Double one, using ToDouble.

Public Sub ConvertDoubleByte(ByVal doubleVal As Double)
   Dim byteVal As Byte = 0

   ' Double to Byte conversion can overflow.
      byteVal = System.Convert.ToByte(doubleVal)
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("{0} as a Byte is: {1}.", _
          doubleVal, byteVal) & vbCrLf
   Catch exception As System.OverflowException
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format( _
          "Overflow in Double-to-Byte conversion.") & vbCrLf
   End Try

   ' Byte to Double conversion cannot overflow.
   doubleVal = System.Convert.ToDouble(byteVal)
   outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("{0} as a Double is: {1}.", _
                             byteVal, doubleVal) & vbCrLf
End Sub
public void ConvertDoubleByte(double doubleVal)
   byte byteVal = 0;

   // Double to byte conversion can overflow.
      byteVal = System.Convert.ToByte(doubleVal);
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} as a byte is: {1}.",
         doubleVal, byteVal) + "\n";
   catch (System.OverflowException)
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
         "Overflow in double-to-byte conversion.") + "\n";

   // Byte to double conversion cannot overflow.
   doubleVal = System.Convert.ToDouble(byteVal);
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} as a double is: {1}.",
      byteVal, doubleVal) + "\n";
