BigInteger.GreaterThan Operator (UInt64, BigInteger)

 

Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is greater than a 64-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

Namespace:   System.Numerics
Assembly:  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

Public Shared Operator > (
	left As ULong,
	right As BigInteger
) As Boolean

Parameters

left
Type: System.UInt64

The first value to compare.

right
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:

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

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
