Math.Max Method (Byte, Byte)

Returns the larger of two 8-bit unsigned integers.

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

public:
static unsigned char Max (
	unsigned char val1, 
	unsigned char val2
)
public static byte Max (
	byte val1, 
	byte val2
)
public static function Max (
	val1 : byte, 
	val2 : byte
) : byte

Parameters

val1

The first of two 8-bit unsigned integers to compare.

val2

The second of two 8-bit unsigned integers to compare.

Return Value

Parameter val1 or val2, whichever is larger.
