    Hi, how do I convert my integer to single?

    My single :
    dim mySingle() as single

    My integer :
    dim myInteger as integer = 200


    mySingle() = {200} works fine but not mySingle() = myInteger .... why?

    Mysingle is array of type single.while myinteger is simply an variable of type integer.

    So array type cannot be converted into a variable.

    MGK Sweden,

    Actually there are many overload methods in Convert.ToSingle method. For example, ToSingle(Int16) converts the value of the specified 16-bit signed integer to an equivalent single-precision floating point number; ToSingle(Int32) converts the value of the specified 32-bit signed integer to an equivalent single-precision floating point number. Please use the proper ToSingle method overload according to your current scenario. The following link shows you the way:
