Decimal.ToSingle() Method in C#

  • Last Updated : 31 Jan, 2019
Geek Week

This method is used to convert the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent single-precision floating-point number. This method can produce round-off errors as a single-precision floating-point number has few significant digits than a Decimal.

Syntax: public static float ToSingle (decimal d);
Here, d is the decimal number which is to be converted.

Return value: It returns a single-precision floating-point number equivalent to d.


// C# program to demonstrate the
// Decimal.ToSingle(Decimal) Method
using System;
class GFG {
    // Main Method
    public static void Main()
        try {
            // Taking decimal variables
            Decimal dec1 = 0.0000000000134563456789M;
            Decimal dec2 = 4589662514452860951234M;
            // using ToSingle(Decimal) Method
            float val1 = Decimal.ToSingle(dec1);
            // using ToSingle(Decimal) Method
            float val2 = Decimal.ToSingle(dec2);
            // Printing the float value
            Console.WriteLine("The float value "
                             + "is : {0}", val1);
            // Printing the float value
            Console.WriteLine("The float value "
                            + "is : {0}", val2);
        catch (OverflowException e) 
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
The float value is : 1.345635E-11
The float value is : 4.589663E+21
