Int16.MaxValue Field in C# with Examples

The MaxValue field or property of Int16 Struct is used to represent the maximum value of Int16. The value of this field is constant means that the user cannot change the value of this field. The value of this field is 32767. Its hexadecimal value is 0x7FFF. It is used to avoid the OverflowException while converting from a numeric type with a greater upper range (such as a UInt16 or an Int32) to an Int16.


public const short MaxValue = 32767;

Return Value: This field always returns 32767.






// C# program to illustrate the
// Int16.MaxValue field
using System;
class GFG {
    // Main Method
    static public void Main()
        // display the Maximum value 
        // of Int16 struct
        Console.WriteLine("Maximum Value is: "+
        // Taking an array of long i.e Int64 data type
        long[]num = {345, -4677, -65245465445441, 44456564};
        // taking variable of Int16 type
        short mynum;
        foreach(long n in num){
            if(n >= Int16.MinValue && n <= Int16.MaxValue)
                // using the method of Convert class
                // to convert Int64 to Int16 
                mynum = Convert.ToInt16(n);
                Console.WriteLine("Conversion is Possible.");
                Console.WriteLine("Not Possible");



Maximum Value is: 32767
Conversion is Possible.
