LessThanOrEqual Operator (BigInteger, Int64)

BigInteger.LessThanOrEqual Operator (BigInteger, Int64)


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

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

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


Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The first value to compare.

Type: System.Int64

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.Parse("9801324316220166912");
if (number <= Int64.MaxValue)
   // Do something.
   // Do something else.

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.CompareTo(Int64) method instead. They can also call the LessThanOrEqual(BigInteger, Int64) method directly, as the following example shows.

Dim number As BigInteger = BigInteger.Parse("9801324316220166912")
If BigInteger.op_LessThanOrEqual(number, Int64.MaxValue) Then
   ' Do something.
   ' Do something else.
End If      

If right is a Byte, Int16, Int32, SByte, UInt16, or UInt32 value, it is implicitly converted to an Int64 value when the operation is performed.
