) As Double


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

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

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

The following code example demonstrates how to use Min(IEnumerable(Of Double)) to determine the minimum value in a sequence.

' Create an array of double values.
Dim doubles() As Double = {1.5E+104, 9.0E+103, -2.0E+103}

' Determine the smallest number in the array.
Dim min As Double = doubles.Min()

' Display the result.
MsgBox("The smallest number is " & min)

' This code produces the following output:
' The smallest number is -2E+103
