Decimal.op_Subtraction Method

Subtracts two specified Decimal values.

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static decimal operator - (
	decimal d1,
	decimal d2
)
J# does not support overloaded operators.
JScript supports the use of overloaded operators, but not the declaration of new ones.

Parameters

d1

A Decimal.

d2

A Decimal.

Return Value

The Decimal result of subtracting d2 from d1.
Exception typeCondition

OverflowException

The return value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

The following code example creates several pairs of Decimal values and calculates their differences with the Subtraction operator.

// Example of the decimal addition and subtraction operators.
using System;

class DecimalAddSubOpsDemo
{
    const string dataFmt = "   {0,-18}{1,31}" ;

    // Display decimal parameters and their sum and difference.
    static void ShowDecimalSumDiff( decimal Left, decimal Right )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal Left", Left );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal Right", Right );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left + Right",

        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left - Right",
