Decimal.ToInt16() Method in C#

This method is used to convert the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 16-bit signed integer. A user can also convert a Decimal value to a 16-bit integer by using the Explicit assignment operator.

Syntax: public static short ToInt16 (decimal value);
Here, the value is the decimal number which is to be converted.

Return Value: It returns a 16-bit signed integer equivalent to the specified value.

Exception: This method will give OverflowException if the specified value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

Below programs illustrate the use of the above-discussed method:

            // using Decimal.ToInt16(Decimal) Method
            // Here short means Int16
            short val1 = Decimal.ToInt16(dec1);
               
            // using Decimal.ToInt16(Decimal) Method
            // Here short means Int16
            short val2 = Decimal.ToInt16(dec2);
               
   
            // Printing the Int16 value
            Console.WriteLine("The Int16 value "
                              + "is : {0}", val1);
                                 
            // Printing the Int16 value
            Console.WriteLine("The Int16 value "
                              + "is : {0}", val2);
                           
        }
   
        catch (OverflowException e) 
        {
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
}
