BigInteger.GreaterThan Operator (BigInteger, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is greater than another BigInteger value.

Namespace:  System.Numerics
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Numerics (in System.Runtime.Numerics.dll)
  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

public static bool operator >(
	BigInteger left,
	BigInteger right


Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

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:

BigInteger number1 = 945834723;
BigInteger number2 = 345145625;
BigInteger number3 = 945834724;
Console.WriteLine(number1 > number2);              // Displays True
Console.WriteLine(number1 > number3);              // Displays False

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.Compare(BigInteger, BigInteger) method instead. They can also call the GreaterThan(BigInteger, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.

Dim numberA As BigInteger = 945834723
Dim numberB As BigInteger = 345145625
Dim numberC As BigInteger = 945834724 
Console.WriteLine(BigInteger.op_GreaterThan(numberA, numberB))    ' Displays True
Console.WriteLine(BigInteger.op_GreaterThan(numberA, numberC))    ' Displays False
