Decimal.Truncate Method

Returns the integral digits of the specified Decimal; any fractional digits are discarded.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public static decimal Truncate(
	decimal d
)

Parameters

d
Type: System.Decimal

The decimal number to truncate.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The result of d rounded toward zero, to the nearest whole number.

This method rounds d toward zero, to the nearest whole number, which corresponds to discarding any digits after the decimal point.

The following code example uses the Truncate method to discard the fractional digits of several Decimal values.

// Example of the decimal.Negate, decimal.Floor, and decimal.Truncate  
// methods.  
using System;

class DecimalFloorNegTruncDemo
{
    const string dataFmt = "{0,-30}{1,26}";

    // Display decimal parameters and the method results. 
    public static void ShowDecimalFloorNegTrunc( decimal Argument )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal Argument", Argument );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal.Negate( Argument )", 
            decimal.Negate( Argument ) );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal.Floor( Argument )", 
            decimal.Floor( Argument ) );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal.Truncate( Argument )", 
            decimal.Truncate( Argument ) );
    }

    public static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( "This example of the \n" +
            "  decimal.Negate( decimal ), \n" +
            "  decimal.Floor( decimal ), and \n" +
            "  decimal.Truncate( decimal ) \n" +
            "methods generates the following output." );

        // Create pairs of decimal objects.
        ShowDecimalFloorNegTrunc( 0M );
        ShowDecimalFloorNegTrunc( 123.456M );
        ShowDecimalFloorNegTrunc( -123.456M );
        ShowDecimalFloorNegTrunc( 
            new decimal( 1230000000, 0, 0, true, 7 ) );
        ShowDecimalFloorNegTrunc( -9999999999.9999999999M );
    }
}
