Golang : How do I convert int to uint8?

Problem :

You have a variable of type int and you want to convert it to type uint8.

Solution :

Type cast the variable to uint8 with uint8() function.

 package main

 import (

 var test int = 8

 func main() {
  fmt.Printf("The value of test is %d \n", test)
  fmt.Printf("The type of test is %v \n", reflect.TypeOf(test))

  newTest := uint8(test)

  fmt.Printf("The value of newTest is %d \n", newTest)
  fmt.Printf("The type of newTest is %v \n", reflect.TypeOf(newTest))


Output :

The value of test is 8

The type of test is int

The value of newTest is 8

The type of newTest is uint8
