The LessThan method defines the operation of the less than operator for Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the Compare method instead. They may also be able to call the LessThan method directly, as the following example shows.

Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim number1 As Decimal = 16354.0699d
      Dim number2 As Decimal = 16354.0695d
      Console.WriteLine("{0} < {1}: {2}", number1, number2, 
                        Decimal.op_LessThan(number1, number2))

      number1 = Decimal.Round(number1, 2)
      number2 = Decimal.Round(number2, 2)
      Console.WriteLine("{0} < {1}: {2}", number1, number2, 
                        Decimal.op_LessThan(number1, number2))
   End Sub 
End Module 
' The example displays the following output: 
'       16354.0699 < 16354.0695: False 
'       16354.07 < 16354.07: False
