What is Common Type System (CTS)?

Microsoft .Net framework supports multiple programming languages, so in order to communicate between different programming languages Microsoft introduces CTS. 

CTS are set of standard data types which are common between all the .net programming languages, so that one language can communicate easily with another language.

CTS convert the data types of all .Net programming languages to common data type so that different programming languages can communicate easily.

For Ex. OR How CTS converts the data type to a common data type

In VB.Net we declare integer as Integer and in we declare integer as int. So in order to communicate between this languages CTS coverts them into common data type as “System.Int32”.

  1. The Common Type System (CTS) is a standard that specifies how type definitions and specific values of types are represented in computer memory. It is intended to allow programs written in different programming languages to easily share information. As used in programming languages, a type can be described as a definition of a set of values (for example, "all integers between 0 and 10"), and the allowable operations on those values (for example, addition and subtraction).
