Decimal.GreaterThan Operator

Returns a value indicating whether a specified Decimal is greater than another specified Decimal.

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

public static bool operator >(
	decimal d1,
	decimal d2
)

Parameters

d1
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal.
d2
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if d1 is greater than d2; otherwise, false.

The following code example compares several Decimal values to a reference Decimal value using the Greater Than operator.


// Example of the decimal relational operators.
using System;

class Example
{
   const string dataFmt = "{0,43}    {1}";

   // Compare decimal parameters, and display them with the results.
