static bool operator >(
	unsigned long long left,
	BigInteger right


Type: System::UInt64

The first value to compare.

Type: System.Numerics::BigInteger

The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if left is greater than right; otherwise, false.

The GreaterThan method defines the operation of the greater than operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger::CompareTo(UInt64) method instead. Some languages can also call the GreaterThan(UInt64, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.

Dim bigNumber As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 2)
Dim number As ULong = UInt64.MaxValue
If BigInteger.op_GreaterThan(number, bigNumber) Then
   ' Do something
End If
