*= Operator (C# Reference)

 

Updated: July 20, 2015

The binary multiplication assignment operator.

An expression using the *= assignment operator, such as

x *= y  

is equivalent to

x = x * y  

except that x is only evaluated once. The * operator is predefined for numeric types to perform multiplication.

The *= operator cannot be overloaded directly, but user-defined types can overload the * operator (see operator).

    class MainClass10
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            int a = 5;
            a *= 6;
            Console.WriteLine(a);
        }
    }
    /*
    Output:
    30
    */
