C# | BitConverter.ToUInt32 Method

This method is used to return a 32-bit unsigned integer converted from four bytes at a specified position in a byte array.

Syntax:

public static uint ToUInt32 (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 32-bit unsigned integer formed by four bytes beginning at startIndex.



Exceptions:

  • ArgumentException: If the startIndex is greater than or equal to the length of value minus 3, 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.
