Complex.Zero Field

Returns a new Complex instance with a real number equal to zero and an imaginary number equal to zero.

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

'Declaration
Public Shared ReadOnly Zero As Complex

The Zero property is most frequently used to compare a Complex value to zero.

The following example instantiates a Complex value by using the Zero property. It then compares this value to another value that is instantiated by calling the Complex constructor with a real part equal to zero and an imaginary part equal to zero. As the output from the example shows, the two values are equal.

Imports System.Numerics

Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim value As Complex = Complex.Zero
      Console.WriteLine(value.ToString())

      ' Instantiate a complex number with real part 1 and imaginary part 0. 
      Dim value1 As New Complex(0, 0)
      Console.WriteLine(value.Equals(value1))
   End Sub 
End Module 
' The example displays the following output: 
'       (0, 0) 
'       True
