Double::IsNaN Method

Returns a value that indicates whether the specified value is not a number (NaN).

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

public:
static bool IsNaN(
	double d
)

Parameters

d
Type: System::Double

A double-precision floating-point number.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if d evaluates to NaN; otherwise, false.

Floating-point operations return NaN to signal that that result of the operation is undefined. For example, dividing 0.0 by 0.0 results in NaN.

NoteNote

IsNaN returns false if a Double value is either PositiveInfinity or NegativeInfinity. To test for these values, use the IsInfinity, IsPositiveInfinity, and IsNegativeInfinity methods.

The following code example illustrates the use of IsNaN:

// This will return true. 
if ( Double::IsNaN( 0 / zero ) )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "Double::IsNan() can determine whether a value is not-a-number." );
}
