# 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:

Example 1:

 `// C# program to demonstrate the ` `// Decimal.ToInt16(Decimal) Method ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` `        ``try` `{ ` ` `  `            ``// Taking decimal variables ` `            ``Decimal dec1 = 21564.236M; ` `            ``Decimal dec2 = 32767.256m; ` `  `  `            ``// 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); ` `        ``} ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```The Int16 value is : 21564
The Int16 value is : 32767
```

Example 2: For OverflowException

 `// C# program to demonstrate the ` `// Decimal.ToInt16(Decimal) Method ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` `        ``try` `{ ` ` `  `            ``// Taking decimal variable ` `            ``// Taking the maximum value  ` `            ``// of Decimal ` `            ``Decimal dec1 = Decimal.MaxValue; ` `  `  `            ``// using Decimal.ToInt16(Decimal) Method ` `            ``// Here short means Int16 ` `            ``// It will give error as Decimal.MaxValue ` `            ``// value is out of range from Int16 ` `            ``short` `val1 = Decimal.ToInt16(dec1); ` `              `  `  `  `            ``// Printing the Int16 value ` `            ``Console.WriteLine(``"The Int16 value "` `                              ``+ ``"is : {0}"``, val1); ` `        ``} ` `  `  `        ``catch` `(OverflowException e)  ` `        ``{ ` `            ``Console.Write(``"Exception Thrown: "``); ` `            ``Console.Write(``"{0}"``, e.GetType(), e.Message); ` `        ``} ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Exception Thrown: System.OverflowException
```
