Decimal.Zero Field

.NET Framework 2.0

Represents the number zero (0).

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

Syntax

```public static readonly decimal Zero
```
```public static final Decimal Zero
```
```public static final var Zero : decimal
```

Example

The following code example illustrates the use of the Zero field.

```// Example of the Decimal fields.
using System;

class DecimalFieldsDemo
{
public static void Main( )
{
const string numberFmt = "{0,-25}{1,45:N0}";
const string exprFmt = "{0,-55}{1,15}";

Console.WriteLine(
"This example of the fields of the Decimal structure " +
"\ngenerates the following output.\n" );
Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Field or Expression", "Value" );
Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "-------------------", "-----" );

// Display the values of the Decimal fields.
Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Decimal.MaxValue",
Decimal.MaxValue );
Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Decimal.MinValue",
Decimal.MinValue );
Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Decimal.MinusOne",
Decimal.MinusOne );
Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Decimal.One", Decimal.One );
Console.WriteLine( numberFmt, "Decimal.Zero", Decimal.Zero );
Console.WriteLine( );

// Display the values of expressions of the Decimal fields.
Console.WriteLine( exprFmt,
"( Decimal.MinusOne + Decimal.One ) == Decimal.Zero",
(Decimal.MinusOne + Decimal.One ) == Decimal.Zero );
Console.WriteLine( exprFmt,
"Decimal.MaxValue + Decimal.MinValue",
Decimal.MaxValue + Decimal.MinValue );
Console.WriteLine( exprFmt,
"Decimal.MinValue / Decimal.MaxValue",
Decimal.MinValue / Decimal.MaxValue );
Console.WriteLine( "{0,-40}{1,30}",
"100000000000000M / Decimal.MaxValue",
100000000000000M / Decimal.MaxValue );
