Example of ushort keyword in C#

Here, we are declaring an ushort variable num, initializing it with the value 12345 and printing its value, type and size of an ushort type variable.

using System;
using System.Text;

namespace Test {
  class Program {
    static void Main(string[] args) {
      //variable declaration
      ushort num = 12345;

      //printing value
      Console.WriteLine("num: " + num);
      //printing type of variable
      Console.WriteLine("Type of num: " + num.GetType());
      //printing size
      Console.WriteLine("Size of a ushort variable: " + sizeof(ushort));
      //printing minimum & maximum value of ushort
      Console.WriteLine("Min value of ushort: " + ushort.MinValue);
      Console.WriteLine("Max value of ushort: " + ushort.MaxValue);

      //hit ENTER to exit


num: 12345
Type of num: System.UInt16
Size of a ushort variable: 2
Min value of ushort: 0
Max value of ushort: 65535
