Represents negative infinity. This field is constant.

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

public const double NegativeInfinity
public static final double NegativeInfinity
public const var NegativeInfinity : double
Not applicable.

The value of this constant is the result of dividing a negative number by zero.

This constant is returned when the result of an operation is less than MinValue.

Use IsNegativeInfinity to determine whether a value evaluates to negative infinity. It is not possible to determine whether a value evaluates to negative infinity by comparing it to another value equal to NegativeInfinity.

The following code example illustrates the use of NegativeInfinity:

// This will equal Infinity.
Console.WriteLine("10.0 minus NegativeInfinity equals {0}.", (10.0 - Double.NegativeInfinity).ToString());

// This will equal Infinity.
Console.WriteLine("10.0 minus NegativeInfinity equals {0}.",
    System.Convert.ToString(10.0 - System.Double.NegativeInfinity));
