Decimal.Increment Operator

Increments the Decimal operand by 1.

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

public static decimal operator ++(
	decimal d
)

Parameters

d
Type: System.Decimal
The Decimal operand.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The value of d incremented by 1.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

The return value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

The following code example applies the Increment operator to several Decimal values.


// Example of the decimal increment, decrement, unary negation, and 
// unary plus operators.
using System;

class Example
{
   // Get the exception type name; remove the namespace prefix.
   public static string GetExceptionType(Exception ex)
   {
      string exceptionType = ex.GetType().ToString();
      return exceptionType.Substring(
          exceptionType.LastIndexOf('.') + 1);
   }

   // Display the argument and the incremented and decremented values.
   public static void DecIncrDecrUnary(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, decimal argument)
   {
      decimal toBeIncr = argument;
      decimal toBeDecr = argument;

      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0,-26}{1}", "decimal argument: ",
          argument) + "\n";

      // Catch the exception if the increment operator throws one.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0,-26}", "argument ++");
      try
      {
         toBeIncr++;
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0}", toBeIncr) + "\n";
      }
      catch (Exception ex)
      {
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0}", GetExceptionType(ex)) + "\n";
      }

      // Catch the exception if the decrement operator throws one.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0,-26}", "argument --");
      try
      {
         toBeDecr--;

         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0}", GetExceptionType(ex)) + "\n";
      }

      outputBlock.Text += "\n";
   }

   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("This example of the decimal increment, " +
          "decrement, unary negation, \nand unary plus operators " +
          "generates the following output. It \ndisplays the " +
          "results of the operators on several decimal values.\n") + "\n";

      // Create objects to compare with the reference.
      DecIncrDecrUnary(outputBlock, 0.000000123M);
      DecIncrDecrUnary(outputBlock, new decimal(123000000, 0, 0, false, 9));
      DecIncrDecrUnary(outputBlock, -new decimal(123000000, 0, 0, false, 9));
      DecIncrDecrUnary(outputBlock, +decimal.MaxValue);
      DecIncrDecrUnary(outputBlock, -decimal.MaxValue);
      DecIncrDecrUnary(outputBlock, +7.5000000000000000000000000001M);
