Decimal.op_GreaterThan Method

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

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

'Declaration
Public Shared Operator > ( _
	d1 As Decimal, _
	d2 As Decimal _
) As Boolean
'Usage
Dim d1 As Decimal
Dim d2 As Decimal
Dim returnValue As Boolean

returnValue = (d1 > d2)
Not applicable.

Parameters

d1

A Decimal.

d2

A Decimal.

Return Value

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.
