Single.PositiveInfinity Field

Represents positive infinity. This field is constant.

[Visual Basic]
Public Const PositiveInfinity As Single
[C#]
public const float PositiveInfinity;
[C++]
public: const float PositiveInfinity;
[JScript]
public var PositiveInfinity : float;

Remarks

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

This constant is returned when the result of an operation is greater than MaxValue.

Use IsPositiveInfinity to determine whether a value evaluates to positive infinity. It is not possible to determine whether a value evaluates to positive infinity by comparing it to another value equal to PositiveInfinity.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following sample demonstrates the PositiveInfinity constant.

[Visual Basic] 
' This will equal Infinity.
Console.WriteLine("PositiveInfinity plus 10.0 equals " + (Single.PositiveInfinity + 10).ToString() + ".")

[C#] 
// This will equal Infinity.
Console.WriteLine("PositiveInfinity plus 10.0 equals {0}.", (Single.PositiveInfinity + 10.0).ToString());

[C++] 
// This will equal Infinity.
Console::WriteLine(S"PositiveInfinity plus 10.0 equals {0}.", __box((Single::PositiveInfinity + 10.0)));
