No they are not the same. Is that what your research lead you to believe? An int is signed and a uint is unsigned.

oh thank you i guess i should use uint as required

Refer - What is the difference between “int” and “uint” / “long” and “ulong”?[^].

Yes, if you don't have negative numbers to deal with.

Thanks Sergey. :)
1. uint equivalent with Uint32 - means unsigned integer and can have only positive values;

2. int is equivalent with Int32 -and is a normal integer type can can have also negative values

3. You can convert from one type to other if both are positive values and in the case from uint to int if the value is not bigger then Maximum value for Int32.

Welcome!

One note: "equivalent" means that uint and int are C# aliases for System.UInt32 (note fixed capitalization and full type name) and System.Int32. Voted 4.

The limits for int (32 bit) are:

C++
int: –2147483648 to 2147483647 

C++
uint: 0 to 4294967295 


And for long (64 bit):

C++
long: -9223372036854775808 to 9223372036854775807

C++
ulong: 0 to 18446744073709551615

thank you too
Alternatively, in PLC programs, sometimes SINT is a signed integer data type.

Absolutely nothing to do with the question, which already has several perfectly good answers.
