New Post: How to pass short int from script to C# methods

Hi James2015Li,

The native value of a JavaScript number is double-precision floating-point. When you pass such a value to a .NET method, ClearScript converts it to one of the following managed types, choosing the first one that results in no numeric data loss:
  • System.Int32
  • System.Int64
  • System.Single
  • System.Double
In your sample above the argument 123 is converted to System.Int32, which is not implicitly convertible to System.Int16, so the call fails. However, ClearScript provides a helper function you can use in this scenario:
engine.AddHostObject("host", new HostFunctions());
The HostFunctions class includes methods for converting script numbers to most managed numeric types. Unfortunately at the moment there's no way to change the default conversion algorithm.

Good luck!
