# C# | Int16 Struct

In C#, Int16 Struct represents 16-bit signed integer(also termed as short data type)starting from the range -32768 to +32767. It provides different types of method to perform various actions like to convert the value of an instance of this type to its string representation, to convert the string representation of a number to an instance of this type, and to compare instances of this type, etc. You can also call the methods of math class to perform mathematical operations. This struct is defined under System namespace. Int16 struct inherits the ValueType class which inherits the Object class.

#### Fields

FieldsDescription
MaxValueThis field is used to represent the largest possible value of an Int16. This field is constant.
MinValueThis field is used to represent the smallest possible value of Int16. This field is constant.

Example:

 `// C# program to illustrate the``// MaxValue and MinValue field``using` `System;`` ` `class` `GFG {`` ` `    ``// Main method``    ``static` `public` `void` `Main()``    ``{``        ``Int16 var1 = 100;``        ``Int16 var2 = 30;``        ``Int16 var3 = 50;`` ` `        ``// Get the Maximum and Minimum value of ``        ``// Int16 type Using MaxValue and the ``        ``// MinValue field``        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Value 1: {0}"``, var1);``        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Value 2: {0}"``, var2);``        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Value 3: {0}"``, var3);``        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Maximum Value: {0}"``, Int16.MaxValue);``        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Minimum Value: {0}"``, Int16.MinValue);``    ``}``}`

Output:

```Value 1: 100
Value 2: 30
Value 3: 50
Maximum Value: 32767
Minimum Value: -32768
```

#### Methods

MethodDescription
CompareTo()This method is used to compare this instance to a specified object or another Int16 instance and returns an integer that indicates whether the value of this instance is less than, equal to, or greater than the value of the specified object or the other Int16 instance.
Equals()This method is used to return a value indicating whether this instance is equal to a specified object or Int16.
GetHashCode()This method is used to return the hash code for this instance.
GetTypeCode()This method is used to return the TypeCode for value type Int16.
Parse()This method is used to convert the string representation of a number to its 16-bit signed integer equivalent.
ToString()This method is used to convert the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation.
TryParse()This method is used to convert the string representation of a number to its 16-bit signed integer equivalent. A return value indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.

Example 1:

 `// C# program to demonstrate the ``// Int16.Equals(Object) Method ``using` `System; ``   ` `class` `GFG { ``   ` `    ``// Main Method ``    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ``    ``{ ``        ``// Declaring and initializing value1 ``        ``short` `value1 = 57; ``   ` `        ``// Declaring and initializing value2 ``        ``// It will convert into Int16 implicitly  ``        ``// by the compiler to check whether it is  ``        ``// in the range of short data type i.e.  ``        ``// Int16 or not ``        ``object` `value2 = 47; ``   ` `        ``// using Equals(object) method ``        ``bool` `status = value1.Equals(value2); ``   ` `        ``// checking the status ``        ``if` `(status) ``            ``Console.WriteLine(``"{0} is equal to {1}"``, ``                                    ``value1, value2); ``        ``else``            ``Console.WriteLine(``"{0} is not equal to {1}"``, ``                                        ``value1, value2); ``    ``} ``} `

Output:

```57 is not equal to 47
```

Example 2:

 `// C# program to illustrate the ``// GetHashCode() method``using` `System;`` ` `class` `GFG {`` ` `    ``// Main method``    ``static` `public` `void` `Main()``    ``{``        ``Int16 var1 = 100;``        ``Int16 var2 = 30;``        ``Int16 var3 = 50;`` ` `        ``// Get the hash code of all the variables``        ``// Using GetHashCode() method``        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Get the hash code of var1: {0}"``,``                                       ``var1.GetHashCode());`` ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Get the hash code of var2: {0}"``,``                                       ``var2.GetHashCode());`` ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Get the hash code of var3: {0}"``,``                                       ``var3.GetHashCode());``    ``}``}`

Output:

```Get the hash code of var1: 6553700
Get the hash code of var2: 1966110
Get the hash code of var3: 3276850
```
