System.ComponentModel.Int16Converter Class

Provides a type converter to convert 16-bit signed integer objects to and from other representations.

See Also: Int16Converter Members


public class Int16Converter : BaseNumberConverter


This converter can only convert a 16-bit signed integer object to and from a string. The short value type represents signed integers with values ranging from negative 32768 through positive 32767.

The erload:System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter.ConvertFrom method uses the short.Parse(string) method of short with the integer value of System.Globalization.NumberStyles.

The erload:System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter.ConvertTo method uses the general ("G") format for the string returned.

For more information about type converters, see the System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter base class and How to: Implement a Type Converter.


You should never create an instance of an System.ComponentModel.Int16Converter. Instead, call the TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(object) method of System.ComponentModel.TypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter base class.
