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 byte MaxValue;           
// =255
   public const byte MinValue;           
// =0
