public class Example
{
       public void Example1()
       {
           // The default unit type is millimeter.
           Distance value1 = new Distance(30);

           // Other unit types must be specified explicitly.
           Distance value2 = new Distance(2, Distance.UnitType.Inch);

           // Perform sum calculation using the same units for both distances.
           Distance sumOfDistances = new Distance(value1.Value + value2.Value, Distance.CurrentUnitType);
       }
