Int16 Data Type

Holds signed 16-bit (2-byte) integer values in the range −32,768 – +32,767.


Default value
When you declare a variable of type Int16 and do not initialize it, its default value is zero (0).
Automatic conversions
Int16 widens to Int32, Int64, Int128, Real32, Real64, or Real128 without risk of overflow.
Type characters
You can put the suffix i16 (or I16) on the end of an integer literal. But there are no type characters for names.
