Represents the number negative one (-1).

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

public static readonly decimal MinusOne
public static final Decimal MinusOne
public static final var MinusOne : decimal
Not applicable.

The following code example illustrates the use of the MinusOne field.
