Math.Max Method (UInt32, UInt32)

Returns the larger of two 32-bit unsigned integers.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

'Declaration
<CLSCompliantAttribute(False)> _
Public Shared Function Max ( _
	val1 As UInteger, _
	val2 As UInteger _
) As UInteger
'Usage
Dim val1 As UInteger 
Dim val2 As UInteger 
Dim returnValue As UInteger 

returnValue = Math.Max(val1, val2)

Parameters

val1
Type: System.UInt32

The first of two 32-bit unsigned integers to compare.

val2
Type: System.UInt32

The second of two 32-bit unsigned integers to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt32
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 UInt32 variables.
