Math.Max Method (Int16, Int16)

.NET Framework 3.0
Returns the larger of two 16-bit signed integers.

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

```public:
static short Max (
short val1,
short val2
)
```
```public static short Max (
short val1,
short val2
)
```
```public static function Max (
val1 : short,
val2 : short
) : short
```
```Not applicable.
```

Parameters

val1

The first of two 16-bit signed integers to compare.

val2

The second of two 16-bit signed integers to compare.

Return Value

Parameter val1 or val2, whichever is larger.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Max method to return and display the greater of two Int16 variables.

```// This example demonstrates Math.Max()
using namespace System;
int main()
{
String^ str = "{0}: The greater of {1,3} and {2,3} is {3}.";
String^ nl = Environment::NewLine;
Byte xByte1 = 1,xByte2 = 51;
short xShort1 = -2,xShort2 = 52;
int xInt1 = -3,xInt2 = 53;
long xLong1 = -4,xLong2 = 54;
float xSingle1 = 5.0f,xSingle2 = 55.0f;
double xDouble1 = 6.0,xDouble2 = 56.0;
Decimal xDecimal1 = 7,xDecimal2 = 57;

// The following types are not CLS-compliant.
SByte xSbyte1 = 101,xSbyte2 = 111;
UInt16 xUshort1 = 102,xUshort2 = 112;
UInt32 xUint1 = 103,xUint2 = 113;
UInt64 xUlong1 = 104,xUlong2 = 114;
Console::WriteLine( "{0}Display the greater of two values:{0}", nl );
Console::WriteLine( str, "Byte   ", xByte1, xByte2, Math::Max( xByte1, xByte2 ) );
Console::WriteLine( str, "Int16  ", xShort1, xShort2, Math::Max( xShort1, xShort2 ) );
Console::WriteLine( str, "Int32  ", xInt1, xInt2, Math::Max( xInt1, xInt2 ) );
Console::WriteLine( str, "Int64  ", xLong1, xLong2, Math::Max( xLong1, xLong2 ) );
Console::WriteLine( str, "Single ", xSingle1, xSingle2, Math::Max( xSingle1, xSingle2 ) );
Console::WriteLine( str, "Double ", xDouble1, xDouble2, Math::Max( xDouble1, xDouble2 ) );
Console::WriteLine( str, "Decimal", xDecimal1, xDecimal2, Math::Max( xDecimal1, xDecimal2 ) );

//
Console::WriteLine( "{0}The following types are not CLS-compliant.{0}", nl );
Console::WriteLine( str, "SByte  ", xSbyte1, xSbyte2, Math::Max( xSbyte1, xSbyte2 ) );
Console::WriteLine( str, "UInt16 ", xUshort1, xUshort2, Math::Max( xUshort1, xUshort2 ) );
Console::WriteLine( str, "UInt32 ", xUint1, xUint2, Math::Max( xUint1, xUint2 ) );
Console::WriteLine( str, "UInt64 ", xUlong1, xUlong2, Math::Max( xUlong1, xUlong2 ) );
}

/*
This example produces the following results:

Display the greater of two values:

Byte   : The greater of   1 and  51 is 51.
Int16  : The greater of  -2 and  52 is 52.
Int32  : The greater of  -3 and  53 is 53.
Int64  : The greater of  -4 and  54 is 54.
Single : The greater of   5 and  55 is 55.
Double : The greater of   6 and  56 is 56.
Decimal: The greater of   7 and  57 is 57.

(The following types are not CLS-compliant.)

SByte  : The greater of 101 and 111 is 111.
UInt16 : The greater of 102 and 112 is 112.
UInt32 : The greater of 103 and 113 is 113.
