C# | BitConverter.ToUInt16 Method

This method is used to return a 16-bit unsigned integer converted from two bytes at a specified position in a byte array.

Syntax:

public static ushort ToUInt16 (byte[] value, int startIndex);

Parameters:

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

Return Value: This method returns a 16-bit unsigned integer formed by two bytes beginning at startIndex.

Exceptions:

  • ArgumentException: If startIndex equals the length of bytes minus 1.
  • ArgumentNullException: If the bytes is null.
  • ArgumentOutOfRangeException: If startIndex is less than zero or greater than the length of bytes minus 1.

Below programs illustrate the use of BitConverter.ToUInt16 Method:
