*= Operator

The multiplication assignment operator.

lhs *= expr

Where:

lhs
A storage location, property, or indexer.
expr
An expression.

Remarks

An expression using the *= assignment operator, such as

x *= y

is equivalent to

x = x * y

except that x is only evaluated once. The * operator is predefined for numeric types to perform multiplication.

The *= operator cannot be overloaded directly, but user-defined types can overload the * operator (see operator).

Example

// cs_operator_multiplication_assignment.cs
using System;
class Test 
{
   public static void Main() 
   {
      int a = 5;
      a *= 6;
      Console.WriteLine(a);
   }
}

Output

30
