One of the lesser known features of C# is the ability to create implicit and explicit user-defined type conversions, meaning we have support for both implicit and explicit conversions of one type to another type. We also have explicit and implicit operators, meaning some operators require an explicit cast and some operators don’t.
This article talks about these explicit and implicit conversion operators and how we can work with them in C#. To work with the code examples provided in this article, you should have Visual Studio 2019 installed in your system. If you don’t already have a copy, you can download Visual Studio 2019 here.
