Create a C# function that replicates an oracle function

Create a C# function that replicates an oracle function

Hi, I need to recreate this function (oracle) in C#:


FUNCTION dec2hex (N in number) RETURN varchar2 IS
  hexval varchar2(64);
  N2     number := N;
  digit  number;
  hexdigit  char;
  while ( N2 > 0 ) loop
     digit := mod(N2, 36);
     if digit > 9 then
       hexdigit := chr(ascii('A') + digit - 10);
       hexdigit := to_char(digit);
     end if;
     hexval := hexdigit || hexval;
     N2 := trunc( N2 / 36 );
  end loop;
  return hexval;
END dec2hex;

My faulty code:


        public string makeBarCode(string strInput)
            string strHexValue = "";
            int digit = new int();
            char hexdigit = new char();
            int n2 = new int();
            foreach (char str in strInput)
                n2 += str;
                while (n2 > 0) {
                    digit += (str % 36);
                    if (digit > 9)
                        hexdigit += Convert.ToChar(65 + digit - 10); //65 equals A
                        hexdigit += Convert.ToChar(digit);
                    strHexValue += hexdigit.ToString();
                    n2 += (int)decimal.Truncate(n2 / 36);

            return strHexValue;

If the function is fed with: 5044857
It should return: 344MX
