BigInteger.LessThanOrEqual Operator (BigInteger, UInt64)

Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is less than or equal to a 64-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

public static bool operator <=(
	BigInteger left,
	ulong right


Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger
The first value to compare.
Type: System.UInt64
The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if left is less than or equal to right; otherwise, false.

The LessThanOrEqual method defines the operation of the less than or equal to operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

BigInteger number = BigInteger.Add(UInt64.MaxValue, 1354580242510615297);
if (number <= UInt64.MaxValue)
   // Do something.
   // Do something else.

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

Dim number As BigInteger = BigInteger.Add(UInt64.MaxValue, 1354580242510615297ul)
If BigInteger.op_LessThanOrEqual(number, UInt64.MaxValue) Then
   ' Do something.
   ' Do something else.
End If
