# Decimal::Inequality Operator

Visual Studio 2010

Returns a value indicating whether two instances of Decimal are not equal.

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

## Syntax

```public:
static bool operator !=(
Decimal d1,
Decimal d2
)
```

#### Parameters

d1
Type: System::Decimal
The first value to compare.
d2
Type: System::Decimal
The second value to compare.

#### Return Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if d1 and d2 are not equal; otherwise, false.

## Examples

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

```
// Example of the Decimal relational operators.
using namespace System;
#define dataFmt "{0,43}    {1}"

// Compare Decimal parameters, and display them with the results.
void CompareDecimals( Decimal Left, Decimal Right, String^ RightText )
{
Console::WriteLine();
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, String::Concat( "Right: ", RightText ), Right );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left == Right", Left == Right );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left >  Right", Left > Right );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left >= Right", Left >= Right );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left != Right", Left != Right );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left <  Right", Left < Right );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left <= Right", Left <= Right );
}

int main()
{
Decimal Left = Decimal(123.456);
Console::WriteLine( "This example of the Decimal relational operators "
"generates the \nfollowing output. It creates several "
"different Decimal values \nand compares them with "
"the following reference value.\n" );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left: Decimal( 123.456 )", Left );

// Create objects to compare with a 2-hour Decimal.
CompareDecimals( Left, Decimal(1.23456E+2), "Decimal( 1.23456E+2 )" );
CompareDecimals( Left, Decimal(123.4567), "Decimal( 123.4567 )" );
CompareDecimals( Left, Decimal(123.4553), "Decimal( 123.4553 )" );
CompareDecimals( Left, Decimal(123456000,0,0,false,6), "Decimal( 123456000, 0, 0, false, 6 )" );
}

/*
This example of the Decimal relational operators generates the
following output. It creates several different Decimal values
and compares them with the following reference value.

Left: Decimal( 123.456 )    123.456

Right: Decimal( 1.23456E+2 )    123.456
Left == Right    True
Left >  Right    False
Left >= Right    True
Left != Right    False
Left <  Right    False
Left <= Right    True

Right: Decimal( 123.4567 )    123.4567
Left == Right    False
Left >  Right    False
Left >= Right    False
Left != Right    True
Left <  Right    True
Left <= Right    True

Right: Decimal( 123.4553 )    123.4553
Left == Right    False
Left >  Right    True
Left >= Right    True
Left != Right    True
Left <  Right    False
Left <= Right    False

Right: Decimal( 123456000, 0, 0, false, 6 )    123.456000
