SByte

Synopsis

This structure represents an 8-bit signed integer (from -128 to 127). It is not CLS-compliant. Use Int16 instead. In C#, this type is aliased as sbyte.

public struct SByte : IComparable, IFormattable, IConvertible {
// Public Static Fields
   public const field sbyte MaxValue;                            // =127
   public const field sbyte MinValue;                            // =-128
                  // Public Static Methods
   public static method sbyte Parse(string s);  
   public static method sbyte Parse(string s, 
        IFormatProvider provider);  
   public static method sbyte Parse(string s, 
        System.Globalization.NumberStyles style);  
   public static method sbyte Parse(string s, 
        System.Globalization.NumberStyles style, 
        IFormatProvider provider);  
// Public Instance Methods
   public method int CompareTo(object obj);                     // implements IComparable
   public override method bool Equals(object obj);              // overrides ValueType
   public override method int GetHashCode();                     // overrides ValueType
   public method TypeCode GetTypeCode();                         // implements IConvertible
   public override method string ToString();                     // overrides ValueType
   public method string ToString(IFormatProvider provider);     // implements IConvertible
   public method string ToString(string format);  
   public method string ToString(string format,                  // implements IFormattable
        IFormatProvider provider);
