Math.Max Method (Decimal, Decimal)

Returns the larger of two decimal numbers.

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

'Declaration
Public Shared Function Max ( _
	val1 As Decimal, _
	val2 As Decimal _
) As Decimal

Parameters

val1
Type: System.Decimal
The first of two Decimal numbers to compare.
val2
Type: System.Decimal
The second of two Decimal numbers to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
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 Decimal variables.
