BigInteger.LessThanOrEqual Operator (BigInteger, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is less than or equal to another BigInteger value.

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

public static bool operator <=(
	BigInteger left,
	BigInteger right
)

Parameters

left
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger
The first value to compare.
right
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger
The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if left is less than or equal to right; otherwise, false.

The LessThanOrEqual method defines the operation of the less than or equal to operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:


BigInteger number1 = 945834723;
BigInteger number2 = 345145625;
BigInteger number3 = 945834724;
BigInteger number4 = 945834723;
Console.WriteLine(number1 <= number2);             // Displays False
Console.WriteLine(number1 <= number3);             // Displays True
Console.WriteLine(number1 <= number4);             // Displays True


Languages that do not support custom operators can call the Compare method instead. They can also call the LessThanOrEqual(BigInteger, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.


Dim numberA As BigInteger = 945834723
Dim numberB As BigInteger = 345145625
Dim numberC As BigInteger = 945834724 
Dim numberD As BigInteger = 945834723
Console.WriteLine( _
        BigInteger.op_LessThanOrEqual(numberA, numberB))    ' Displays False
Console.WriteLine( _
        BigInteger.op_LessThanOrEqual(numberA, numberC))    ' Displays True
Console.WriteLine( _
        BigInteger.op_LessThanOrEqual(numberA, numberD))    ' Displays True
