In this code snippet, we will learn how to perform data type conversions in C#.
C# has many different data types. You might find yourself needing to convert from one data type to another. This can be done implicitly by just assigning the value of one variable to another and the conversion will happen automatically. For example, assigning a short to int can be done implicitly as short is just a smaller int. Meanwhile converting a string to an int has to be done explicitly.
Let’s take a look at a few examples in the code example below.
