The operation of converting value type to reference type is called Boxing and the reverse operation is called Unboxing.
int Val = 1; //Value type
Object Obj = Val; //Boxing
The first line we created a Value Type Val and assigned a value to Val. The second line, we created an instance of Object Obj and assign the value of Val to Obj. This is called Boxing
int i = (int)Obj; //Unboxing
