Byte

Synopsis

This simple value type represents an unsigned 8-bit integer that can vary in value from 0 to 255. The Parse() method converts a number in a string (such as 122) into a Byte object. This type is available in C# through the byte alias.

public struct Byte : IComparable, IFormattable, IConvertible {
// Public Static Fields
   public const field byte MaxValue;                             // =255
   public const field byte MinValue;                             // =0
                  // Public Static Methods
   public static method byte Parse(string s);  
   public static method byte Parse(string s, 
        IFormatProvider provider);  
   public static method byte Parse(string s, 
        System.Globalization.NumberStyles style);  
   public static method byte Parse(string s, 
        System.Globalization.NumberStyles style, 
        IFormatProvider provider);  
// Public Instance Methods
   public method int CompareTo(object value);                   // 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);  
}
