Discussion
The number of bits determines directly the range for the respective values:
Number of bits 
Min. value 
Max. value 

8 bit 
0 
255 
16 bit 
0 
65535 
32 bit 
0

The unsigned integer numbers may be expressed in either decimal or hexadecimal notation. A number in hexadecimal notation begins with the prefix 0x. The literals can be used within expressions wherever an uint8, uint16 or uint32 operand is expected. The type names, in turn, are designated to be used in declarations of data members. For example:
var uint32 options = 0xF7700088;
var uint16 voltage = 6000;

Type conversions
Chora reacts sensitive when mixing operands of different data types within an operation. To avoid compiler warnings or even errors you can convert the affected operands explicitly by using following conversion operations:
Conversion operations with unsigned integers 

Conversion between signed and unsigned integers. 
Conversion to or from a floatingpoint value. 
Conversion to or from an enumeration value. 
Conversion to or from a set value. 
Conversion to or from a char value. 
Formatting a string from an unsigned integer number. 
Parsing a string as an unsigned integer number.
