you're casting to short a 'long' , it's fail because of type mismatch.

1 solution

A short value has only 16 bits, one of which is used to determine sign: it is positive or negative? As a result, the largest positive number you can fit into a short is 32767. Your value vastly exceeds that and requires an integer (32 bits) or long (64 bits)
