VB.Net program to demonstrate the CByte() function

Write a VB.Net program to demonstrate the CByte() function

The function CByte() is used to convert the value of various data types into a byte type.

Syntax :

CByte(val)

Parameters :

  • val: It may be a variable with different types of data.

Return Value :

A converted byte number will be returned by the CByte() function.

Program :

The source code for demonstrating the function CByte() is given below. The program given is compiled and successfully executed.


Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim num As Byte = 0
        Dim n1 As Double = 10.25
        Dim n2 As Single = 12.25
        Dim n3 As Integer = 25
        Dim n4 As String = "122"
        num = CByte(n1)
        Console.WriteLine("Byte Number: {0}", num)
        num = CByte(n2)
        Console.WriteLine("Byte Number: {0}", num)
        num = CByte(n3)
        Console.WriteLine("Byte Number: {0}", num)
        num = CByte(n4)
        Console.WriteLine("Byte Number: {0}", num)
    End Sub
End Module
	
Output:
Byte Number: 10
Byte Number: 12
Byte Number: 25
Byte Number: 122

Explanation:

We created a Module1 module in the program above, which contains the Main() method. Five variables num, n1, n2, n3, and n4 have been created in the Main() method and are initialized with 0, 10.25, 12.25, 25, and 122.

num = CByte(n1)
Console.WriteLine("Byte Number: {0}", num)

num = CByte(n2)
Console.WriteLine("Byte Number: {0}", num)

num = CByte(n3)
Console.WriteLine("Byte Number: {0}", num)

num = CByte(n4)
Console.WriteLine("Byte Number: {0}", num)

We converted the value of the specified variable into a byte in the above code and printed it on the console screen.
