Byte.CompareTo Method (Object)

Compares this instance to a specified object and returns an indication of their relative values.

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

public int CompareTo (
	Object value
)
public final int CompareTo (
	Object value
)
public final function CompareTo (
	value : Object
) : int

Parameters

value

An object to compare, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

A signed integer that indicates the relative order of this instance and value.

Return Value

Description

Less than zero

This instance is less than value.

Zero

This instance is equal to value.

Greater than zero

This instance is greater than value.

-or-

value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentException

value is not a Byte.

value must be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or an instance of Byte; otherwise, an exception is thrown.

Any instance of Byte, regardless of its value, is considered greater than a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

This method is implemented to support the IComparable interface.

The following code example demonstrates the CompareTo method.

public void Compare(Byte myByte)
{
   int myCompareResult;
  
   myCompareResult = MemberByte.CompareTo(myByte);

   if(myCompareResult > 0)
   {
      Console.WriteLine("{0} is less than the MemberByte value {1}", myByte.ToString(), MemberByte.ToString());
   }
   else if(myCompareResult < 0)
   {
      Console.WriteLine("{0} is greater than the MemberByte value {1}", myByte.ToString(), MemberByte.ToString());
   }
   else
   {
      Console.WriteLine("{0} is equal to the MemberByte value {1}", myByte.ToString(), MemberByte.ToString());
   }
}

public void Compare(ubyte myByte)
{
    if (myByte < memberByte) {
        Console.WriteLine("{0} is less than the memberByte value {1}", 
            System.Convert.ToString(myByte), 
            System.Convert.ToString(memberByte));
    }
    else {
        if (myByte > memberByte) {
            Console.WriteLine("{0} is greater than the memberByte value"
                + " {1}", System.Convert.ToString(myByte), 
                System.Convert.ToString(memberByte));
        }
        else {
            Console.WriteLine("{0} is equal to the memberByte value {1}", 
                System.Convert.ToString(myByte), 
                System.Convert.ToString(memberByte));
        }
    }
} //Compare
