## Introduction

This code was written to show how to convert from Hexadecimal, Decimal, Octal or Binary out to a Hexadecimal, Decimal, Octal or Binary value. Many functions demonstrate `Hex2Bin`

, `Bin2Hex`

, `Hex2Dec`

, `Dec2Hex`

, etc. This code will show you how easy it is to convert between any of these bases (2, 8, 10, 16).

## Background

It is good to understand how binary conversions work. Take a look here for more information.

## Using the Code

Enter an input value, and see what the output value is. It's that easy. Use the arrows to add or subtract the value.

The two main functions that deal with the conversions include `Input2Binary() `

and `Binary2Output()`

. From these functions, you can take any input type and convert it to binary, and then convert that binary value to any output type.

The `Input2Binary() `

function contains this code:

switch( numberStyle.ToUpper() )
{
case "HEXADECIMAL":
currInput = Convert.ToUInt64(txtObject, 16);
break;
case "DECIMAL":
currInput = Convert.ToUInt64(txtObject, 10);
break;
case "OCTAL":
currInput = Convert.ToUInt64(txtObject, 8);
break;
case "BINARY":
currInput = Convert.ToUInt64(txtObject, 2);
break;
}

The `Binary2Output() `

function contains this code:

switch( numberStyle.ToUpper() )
{
case "HEXADECIMAL":
txtObject = Convert.ToString(currVal, 16).ToUpper();
break;
case "DECIMAL":
txtObject = Convert.ToString(currVal, 10);
break;
case "OCTAL":
txtObject = Convert.ToString(currVal, 8);
break;
case "BINARY":
txtObject = Convert.ToString(currVal, 2);
break;
}
