Decimal.Increment Operator

Increments the Decimal operand by 1.

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

public static decimal operator ++(
	decimal d
)

Parameters

d
Type: System.Decimal

The value to increment.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The value of d incremented by 1.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

The return value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

The Increment method defines the operation of the increment operator for Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Decimal number = 1079.8m;
      Console.WriteLine("Original value:    {0:N}", number);
      Console.WriteLine("Incremented value: {0:N}", ++number); 
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//       Original value:    1,079.80 
//       Incremented value: 1,080.80

Some languages (such as Visual Basic) that lack an increment operator can call the Increment method directly, as the following example shows.

Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim number As Decimal = 1079.8d
      Console.WriteLine("Original value:    {0:N}", number)
      Console.WriteLine("Incremented value: {0:N}", Decimal.op_Increment(number))
   End Sub 
End Module 
' The example displays the following output: 
'       Original value:    1,079.80 
'       Incremented value: 1,080.80

If your language does not support custom operators, call the Add method instead, as the following example shows.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Decimal number = 1079.8m;
      Console.WriteLine("Original value:    {0:N}", number);
      Console.WriteLine("Incremented value: {0:N}", Decimal.Add(number, 1)); 
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//       Original value:    1,079.80 
//       Incremented value: 1,080.80
