.NET Framework 3.5

The Decimal type exposes the following members.

## Methods

NameDescription
Ceiling Returns the smallest integral value greater than or equal to the specified decimal number.
Compare Compares two specified Decimal values.
CompareTo Overloaded. Compares this instance to a specified object or Decimal and returns an indication of their relative values.
Divide Divides two specified Decimal values.
Equals Overloaded. Returns a value indicating whether two instances of Decimal represent the same value.
Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Floor Rounds a specified Decimal number to the closest integer toward negative infinity.
FromOACurrency Converts the specified 64-bit signed integer, which contains an OLE Automation Currency value, to the equivalent Decimal value.
GetBits Converts the value of a specified instance of Decimal to its equivalent binary representation.
GetHashCode Returns the hash code for this instance. (Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode().)
GetType Gets the type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
GetTypeCode Returns the TypeCode for value type Decimal.
MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Multiply Multiplies two specified Decimal values.
Negate Returns the result of multiplying the specified Decimal value by negative one.
Parse Overloaded. Converts the string representation of a number to its Decimal equivalent.
Remainder Computes the remainder after dividing two Decimal values.
Round Overloaded. Rounds a value to the nearest integer or specified number of decimal places.
Subtract Subtracts one specified Decimal value from another.
ToByte Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 8-bit unsigned integer.
ToDouble Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent double-precision floating-point number.
ToInt16 Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 16-bit signed integer.
ToInt32 Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 32-bit signed integer.
ToInt64 Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 64-bit signed integer.
ToOACurrency Converts the specified Decimal value to the equivalent OLE Automation Currency value, which is contained in a 64-bit signed integer.
ToSByte Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 8-bit signed integer.
ToSingle Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent single-precision floating-point number.
ToString Overloaded. Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent String representation.
ToUInt16 Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 16-bit unsigned integer.
ToUInt32 Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 32-bit unsigned integer.
ToUInt64 Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 64-bit unsigned integer.
Truncate Returns the integral digits of the specified Decimal; any fractional digits are discarded.
TryParse Overloaded. Converts the string representation of a number to its Decimal equivalent. A return value indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.
