Byte Struct in C#

In C#, Byte Struct is used to represent 8-bit unsigned integers. The Byte is an immutable value type and the range of Byte is from 0 to 255. This class allows you to create Byte data types and you can perform mathematical and bitwise operations on them like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, XOR, AND etc.

Fields

Field Description
MaxValue It is the largest possible value of a Byte. This field is constant.
MinValue It is the smallest possible value of a Byte. This field is constant.

Example:

filter_none

code

// C# program to illustrate the concept
// of MaxValue and MinValue fields in Byte
using System;
  
public class GFG {
  
    // Main method
    static public void Main()
    {
  
        // Display the minimum and
        // the maximum value of Byte
        Console.WriteLine("The minimum value "+
                 "of Byte: {0}", Byte.MinValue);
  
        Console.WriteLine("The maximum value "+
                 "of Byte: {0}", Byte.MaxValue);
    }
}

Output:



The minimum value of Byte: 0
The maximum value of Byte: 255

Methods

Method Description
CompareTo(Object) Compares the current instance to a specified object and returns a sign of their relative values.
CompareTo(Byte) Compares this instance to a specified 8-bit unsigned integer and returns an indication of their relative values.
Equals(Object) To get a value which indicates whether the current instance is equal to a specified object or not.
Equals(Byte) Returns a value indicating whether this instance and a specified Byte object represent the same value.
GetHashCode() Returns the hash code for this instance.
GetTypeCode() Returns the TypeCode for value type Byte.
Parse() Converts the string representation of a number to its Byte equivalent.
ToString() Converts the value of the current Byte object to its equivalent string representation.
TryParse() Tries to convert the string representation of a number to its Byte equivalent, and returns a value that indicates whether the conversion succeeded.

        // val1, val2, and val3 are of byte type
        byte val1 = 32;
        byte val2 = 40;
        byte val3 = 10;
  
        // Display the comparision
        // Using CompareTo(Byte) method
        Console.WriteLine("Comparision 1: {0}",
                         val1.CompareTo(val2));
  
        Console.WriteLine("Comparision 2: {0}"
                         val2.CompareTo(val3));
  
        Console.WriteLine("Comparision 3: {0}"
                        val3.CompareTo(val3));
  
        Console.WriteLine("Comparision 4: {0}",
                         val1.CompareTo(val3));
    }
}

Output:

Comparision 1: -8
Comparision 2: 30
Comparision 3: 0
Comparision 4: 22
