Single.NegativeInfinity Field

Represents negative infinity. This field is constant.

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

public const float NegativeInfinity
public static final float NegativeInfinity
public const var NegativeInfinity : float

The value of this constant is the result of dividing a negative number by zero.

This constant is returned when the result of an operation is less than MinValue.

Use IsNegativeInfinity to determine whether a value evaluates to negative infinity. It is not possible to determine whether a value evaluates to negative infinity by comparing it to another value equal to NegativeInfinity.

The following code example demonstrates the NegativeInfinity constant.

// This will equal Infinity.
Console.WriteLine("10.0 minus NegativeInfinity equals {0}.", (10.0 - Single.NegativeInfinity).ToString());

// This will equal Infinity.
Console.WriteLine("10.0 minus NegativeInfinity equals {0}.",
    String.valueOf((10.0 - Float.NEGATIVE_INFINITY)));
