Example

The following code sample illustrates the use of MinValue:

[Visual Basic] 
Public Class Temperature

    Public Shared ReadOnly Property MinValue() As Double
        Get
            Return Double.MinValue
        End Get
    End Property

    Public Shared ReadOnly Property MaxValue() As Double
        Get
            Return Double.MaxValue
        End Get
    End Property

    ' The value holder
    Protected m_value As Double

    Public Property Value() As Double
        Get
            Return m_value
        End Get
        Set(ByVal Value As Double)
            m_value = Value
        End Set
    End Property

    Public Property Celsius() As Double
        Get
            Return (m_value - 32) / 1.8
        End Get
        Set(ByVal Value As Double)
            m_value = Value * 1.8 + 32
        End Set
    End Property
End Class

[C#] 
public class Temperature {
    public static double MinValue {
        get {
            return Double.MinValue;
        }
    }

    public static double MaxValue {
        get {
            return Double.MaxValue;
        }
    }

    // The value holder
    protected double m_value;

    public double Value {
        get {
            return m_value;
        }
        set {
            m_value = value;
        }
    }

    public double Celsius {
        get {
            return (m_value-32.0)/1.8;
        }
        set {
            m_value = 1.8*value+32.0;
        }
    }
}

[C++] 
public __gc class Temperature {
public:
   __property static double get_MinValue() {
      return Double::MinValue;
   }

   __property static double get_MaxValue() {
      return Double::MaxValue;
   }

   // The value holder
protected:
   double m_value;

public:
   __property double get_Value() {
      return m_value;
   }
   __property void set_Value( double value ) {
      m_value = value;
   }

   __property double get_Celsius() {
      return (m_value-32.0)/1.8;
   }
   __property void set_Celsius( double value ) {
      m_value = 1.8*value+32.0;
   }

};

[JScript] 
public class Temperature {
    public static function get MinValue() : double {
        return Double.MinValue;
    }

    public static function get MaxValue() : double {
        return Double.MaxValue;
    }

    // The value holder
    protected var m_value : double;

    public function get Value() : double{
        return m_value;
    }
    
            public function set Value(value : double) {
        m_value = value;
    }

    public function get Celsius() : double {
        return (m_value-32.0)/1.8;
            }
            
            public function set Celsius(value : double) {
        m_value = 1.8*value+32.0;
    }
}
