C# | BitConverter.ToDouble() Method

BitConverter.ToDouble() Method is used to return a double-precision floating point number converted from eight bytes at a specified position in a byte array.

Syntax:

public static double ToDouble (byte[] value, int startIndex);

Parameters:



value: It is an array of bytes.
startIndex: It is the starting position within the value.

Return Value: This method returns a double precision floating point number formed by eight bytes beginning at startIndex.

Exceptions:

  • ArgumentException: If the startIndex is greater than or equal to the length of value minus 7, and is less than or equal to the length of value minus 1.
  • ArgumentNullException: If the value is null.
  • ArgumentOutOfRangeException: If the startIndex is less than zero or greater than the length of value minus 1.
