Represents the number zero (0).

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

public static readonly decimal Zero

The following code example illustrates the use of the Zero field.


// Example of the Decimal fields.
using System;

class DecimalFieldsDemo
{
    public static void Main( )
    {
        const string numberFmt = "{0,-25}{1,45:N0}";
        const string exprFmt = "{0,-55}{1,15}";

        Console.WriteLine( 
            "This example of the fields of the Decimal structure " +
            "\ngenerates the following output.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Field or Expression", "Value" );
        Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "-------------------", "-----" );

        // Display the values of the Decimal fields.
        Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Decimal.MaxValue", 
            Decimal.MaxValue );
        Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Decimal.MinValue", 
            Decimal.MinValue );

        Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Decimal.One", Decimal.One );
        Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Decimal.Zero", Decimal.Zero );
        Console.WriteLine( );

        // Display the values of expressions of the Decimal fields.
        Console.WriteLine( exprFmt, 
            "( Decimal.MinusOne + Decimal.One ) == Decimal.Zero", 
            (Decimal.MinusOne + Decimal.One ) == Decimal.Zero );
        Console.WriteLine( exprFmt, 
            "Decimal.MaxValue + Decimal.MinValue", 
            Decimal.MaxValue + Decimal.MinValue );
        Console.WriteLine( exprFmt, 
            "Decimal.MinValue / Decimal.MaxValue", 
            Decimal.MinValue / Decimal.MaxValue );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-40}{1,30}", 
            "100000000000000M / Decimal.MaxValue",
