C# | BitConverter.ToUInt16 Method

  • Last Updated : 29 May, 2021

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:
Example 1:
 

CSHARP




// C# program to demonstrate
// BitConverter.ToUInt16(Byte[], Int32);
// Method
using System;
 
class GFG {
 
    // Main Method
    public static void Main()
    {
 
        try {
 
            // Define an array of byte values.
            byte[] bytes = {32, 0, 0, 42, 0, 65,
                            0, 125, 0, 197, 0,
                            168, 3, 41, 4, 125,
                                           32};
 
            // Display the values of the myArr.
            Console.Write("Initial Array: ");
 
            // calling the PrintIndexAndValues()
            // method to print
            PrintIndexAndValues(bytes);
 
            // print char value
            Console.WriteLine("index    byte Array     ushort value");
            for (int index = 0; index < bytes.Length - 1;
                                    index = index + 2) {
 
                ushort values = BitConverter.ToUInt16(bytes, index);
 
                Console.WriteLine("  {0}        {1}          {2}",
                               index, BitConverter.ToString(bytes,
                                               index, 2), values);
            }
        }
        catch (ArgumentNullException e) {
 
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
        catch (ArgumentOutOfRangeException e) {
 
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
        catch (ArgumentException e) {
 
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
 
    // Defining the method
    // PrintIndexAndValues
    public static void PrintIndexAndValues(byte[] myArr)
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < myArr.Length; i++) {
 
            Console.Write("{0} ", myArr[i]);
        }
 
        Console.WriteLine();
        Console.WriteLine();
    }
}
Output: 
Initial Array: 32 0 0 42 0 65 0 125 0 197 0 168 3 41 4 125 32 

index    byte Array     ushort value

  6        00-7D          32000
  8        00-C5          50432
  10        00-A8          43008
  12        03-29          10499
