[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Function IsPositiveInfinity( _
   ByVal d As Double _
) As Boolean
[C#]
public static bool IsPositiveInfinity(
 double d
);
[C++]
public: static bool IsPositiveInfinity(
 double d
);
[JScript]
public static function IsPositiveInfinity(
   d : double
) : Boolean;

Parameters

d
A double-precision floating point number.

Return Value

true if d evaluates to PositiveInfinity; otherwise, false.

Remarks

Floating-point operations return PositiveInfinity to signal an overflow condition.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following code sample illustrates the use of IsPositiveInfinity:

[Visual Basic] 
' This will return "True".
Console.Write("IsPositiveInfinity(4.0 / 0) = ")
If Double.IsPositiveInfinity(4 / 0) Then
    Console.WriteLine("True.")
Else
    Console.WriteLine("False.")
End If

[C#] 
// This will return "true".
Console.WriteLine("IsPositiveInfinity(4.0 / 0) == {0}.", Double.IsPositiveInfinity(4.0 / 0) ? "true" : "false");

[C++] 
// This will return S"true".
Console::WriteLine(S"IsPositiveInfinity(4.0 / 0) == {0}.", Double::IsPositiveInfinity(4.0 / zero) ? S"true" : S"false");
