  • Last Updated : 08 Apr, 2019

The MinValue property or Field of Int16 Struct is used to represent the minimum possible value of Int16. The value of this field is constant means that a user cannot change the value of this field. The value of this field is -32768. Its hexadecimal value is 0x8000. It also saves the program from OverflowException while converting numeric type with a greater lower range like Int64 and Int32 to Int16.


public const short MinValue = -32768;

// C# program to illustrate the
// Int16.MinValue field
using System;
class GFG {
    // Main Method
    static public void Main()
        // display the Minimum value of Int16 struct
        Console.WriteLine("Minimum Value is: "+
        // Taking an array of long i.e Int64 data type
        long []num = {742346, 43443, -345, -7463647};
        // 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");
