BigInteger.Inequality Operator (UInt64, BigInteger)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit unsigned integer and a BigInteger value are not equal.

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


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 and right are not equal; otherwise, false.

The Inequality method defines the operation of the inequality operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

Dim bigNumber As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(2, 63) - BigInteger.One
Dim uNumber As ULong = CULng(Int64.MaxValue And CULng(&h7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF))
If uNumber <> bigNumber Then
   ' Do something...
End If

Languages that do not support custom operators can test for inequality by using one of the following techniques:
