Decimal.ToSByte() Method in C#

This method is used to convert the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 8-bit signed integer. A user can also convert a Decimal value to an 8-bit integer by using the Explicit assignment operator.

Syntax: public static sbyte ToSByte (decimal value);

Here, the value is the decimal number which is to be converted.



Return Value: It returns a 8-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:

            Decimal dec2 = 04.2996m;
  
            // using Decimal.ToSByte(Decimal) Method
            sbyte val1 = Decimal.ToSByte(dec1);
  
            // using Decimal.ToSByte(Decimal) Method
            sbyte val2 = Decimal.ToSByte(dec2);
  
            // Printing the SByte value
            Console.WriteLine("The SByte value "
                             + "is : {0}", val1);
                                
  
            // Printing the SByte value
            Console.WriteLine("The SByte value "
                             + "is : {0}",val2);
                                
        }
  
        catch (OverflowException e) 
        {
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
}

Output:

The SByte value is : 127
The SByte value is : 4
