Enumerable.Max Method (IEnumerable(Of Single))


Returns the maximum value in a sequence of Single values.

Namespace:   System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

Public Shared Function Max (
	source As IEnumerable(Of Single)
) As Single


Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable(Of Single)

A sequence of Single values to determine the maximum value of.

Return Value

Type: System.Single

The maximum value in the sequence.

Exception Condition

source is null.


source contains no elements.

The Max(IEnumerable(Of Single)) method uses the Single implementation of IComparable(Of T) to compare values.

In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Max() clause translates to an invocation of Max.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Max(IEnumerable(Of Int64)) to determine the maximum value in a sequence.


This code example uses an overload of this overloaded method that is different from the specific overload that this topic describes. To extend the example to this topic, substitute the elements of the source sequence with elements of the appropriate numerical type.

' Create a list of Long values.
Dim longs As New List(Of Long)(New Long() _
                               {4294967296L, 466855135L, 81125L})

' Get the maximum value in the list.
Dim max As Long = longs.Max()

' Display the result.
MsgBox("The largest number is " & max)

' This code produces the following output:
' The largest number is 4294967296
