BITLSHIFT

In This Topic

This function calculates the value shifted left by the specified number of bits.

BITLSHIFT(*value, shift_amt*)

This function has the following arguments:

Argument | Description |
---|---|

value |
Refers to a value that you want to shift. |

shift_amt |
Refers to a number of bits to be shifted by. |

Shifting a number left is similar to adding zeros (0) at right end of the binary representation of that number. If *shift_amt* is a negative number, then the *value* will be shifted to right.

Accepts numeric data for both arguments. Returns numeric data.

BITLSHIFT(3,5) gives the result 96.

BITLSHIFT(1,4) gives the result 16.

This function is available in Spread for Windows Forms 11.0 or later.
