Math::Max Method (UInt16, UInt16)

Returns the larger of two 16-bit unsigned integers.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public:
static unsigned short Max(
	unsigned short val1, 
	unsigned short val2
)

Parameters

val1
Type: System::UInt16

The first of two 16-bit unsigned integers to compare.

val2
Type: System::UInt16

The second of two 16-bit unsigned integers to compare.

Return Value

Type: System::UInt16
Parameter val1 or val2, whichever is larger.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Max method to return and display the greater of two variables.

// This example demonstrates Math.Max() 
using namespace System;
int main()
{
   String^ str = "{0}: The greater of {1,3} and {2,3} is {3}.";
   String^ nl = Environment::NewLine;
   Byte xByte1 = 1,xByte2 = 51;
   short xShort1 = -2,xShort2 = 52;
   int xInt1 = -3,xInt2 = 53;
   long xLong1 = -4,xLong2 = 54;
   float xSingle1 = 5.0f,xSingle2 = 55.0f;
   double xDouble1 = 6.0,xDouble2 = 56.0;
   Decimal xDecimal1 = 7,xDecimal2 = 57;

   // The following types are not CLS-compliant.
   SByte xSbyte1 = 101,xSbyte2 = 111;
   UInt16 xUshort1 = 102,xUshort2 = 112;
   UInt32 xUint1 = 103,xUint2 = 113;
   UInt64 xUlong1 = 104,xUlong2 = 114;
   Console::WriteLine( "{0}Display the greater of two values:{0}", nl );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "Byte   ", xByte1, xByte2, Math::Max( xByte1, xByte2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "Int16  ", xShort1, xShort2, Math::Max( xShort1, xShort2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "Int32  ", xInt1, xInt2, Math::Max( xInt1, xInt2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "Int64  ", xLong1, xLong2, Math::Max( xLong1, xLong2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "Single ", xSingle1, xSingle2, Math::Max( xSingle1, xSingle2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "Double ", xDouble1, xDouble2, Math::Max( xDouble1, xDouble2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "Decimal", xDecimal1, xDecimal2, Math::Max( xDecimal1, xDecimal2 ) );

   //
   Console::WriteLine( "{0}The following types are not CLS-compliant.{0}", nl );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "SByte  ", xSbyte1, xSbyte2, Math::Max( xSbyte1, xSbyte2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "UInt16 ", xUshort1, xUshort2, Math::Max( xUshort1, xUshort2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "UInt32 ", xUint1, xUint2, Math::Max( xUint1, xUint2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( str, "UInt64 ", xUlong1, xUlong2, Math::Max( xUlong1, xUlong2 ) );
}

/*
This example produces the following results:

Display the greater of two values:

Byte   : The greater of   1 and  51 is 51.
Int16  : The greater of  -2 and  52 is 52.
Int32  : The greater of  -3 and  53 is 53.
Int64  : The greater of  -4 and  54 is 54.
Single : The greater of   5 and  55 is 55.
Double : The greater of   6 and  56 is 56.
Decimal: The greater of   7 and  57 is 57.

(The following types are not CLS-compliant.)

SByte  : The greater of 101 and 111 is 111.
UInt16 : The greater of 102 and 112 is 112.
UInt32 : The greater of 103 and 113 is 113.
UInt64 : The greater of 104 and 114 is 114.
