ArgumentException

value is not a UInt64.

Any instance of UInt64, regardless of its value, is considered greater than null.

value must be null or an instance of UInt64; otherwise, an exception is thrown.

The following code example demonstrates the CompareTo method.

	public class Temperature : IComparable {
		/// <summary> 
		/// IComparable.CompareTo implementation. 
		/// </summary> 
		public int CompareTo(object obj) {
			if(obj is Temperature) {
				Temperature temp = (Temperature) obj;

				return m_value.CompareTo(temp.m_value);
			}
			
			throw new ArgumentException("object is not a Temperature");	
		}

		// The value holder 
		protected ulong m_value;

		public ulong Value {
			get {
				return m_value;
			}
			set {
				m_value = value;
			}
		}
