# Decimal Methods

Silverlight

The Decimal type exposes the following members.

## Methods

Name Description
Ceiling Returns the smallest integral value greater than or equal to the specified decimal number.
Compare Compares two specified Decimal values and returns an integer that indicates whether the first value is greater than, less than, or equal to the second value.
CompareTo(Decimal) Compares this instance to a specified Decimal object and returns an integer that indicates whether the value of this instance is greater than, less than, or equal to the value of the specified Decimal.
CompareTo(Object) Compares this instance to a specified Object and returns an integer that indicates whether the value of this instance is greater than, less than, or equal to the value of the specified Object.
Divide Divides two specified Decimal values.
Equals(Decimal) Returns a value indicating whether this instance and a specified Decimal object represent the same value.
Equals(Object) Returns a value indicating whether this instance and a specified Object represent the same type and value. (Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)
Equals(Decimal, Decimal) Returns a value indicating whether two specified instances of Decimal represent the same value.
Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Floor Rounds a specified Decimal number to the closest integer toward negative infinity.
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(String) Converts the string representation of a number to its Decimal equivalent.
Parse(String, NumberStyles) Converts the string representation of a number in a specified style to its Decimal equivalent.
Parse(String, IFormatProvider) Converts the string representation of a number to its Decimal equivalent using the specified culture-specific format information.
Parse(String, NumberStyles, IFormatProvider) Converts the string representation of a number to its Decimal equivalent using the specified style and culture-specific format.
Remainder Computes the remainder after dividing two Decimal values.
Round Rounds a Decimal value to a 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.
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() Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation. (Overrides ValueType.ToString().)
ToString(IFormatProvider) Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation using the specified culture-specific format information.
ToString(String) Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation, using the specified format.
ToString(String, IFormatProvider) Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation using the specified format and culture-specific format information.
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(String, Decimal) Converts the string representation of a number to its Decimal equivalent. A return value indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.
TryParse(String, NumberStyles, IFormatProvider, Decimal) Converts the string representation of a number to its Decimal equivalent using the specified style and culture-specific format. A return value indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.
