>>= Operator (C# Reference)

 

Updated: July 20, 2015

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

The right-shift assignment operator.

An expression of the form

x >>= y  

is evaluated as

x = x >> y  

except that x is only evaluated once. The >> operator shifts x right by an amount specified by y.

The >>= operator cannot be overloaded directly, but user-defined types can overload the >> operator (see operator).

    class MainClass8
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            int a = 1000;
            a >>= 4;
            Console.WriteLine(a);
        }
    }
    /*
    Output:
    62
    */
