# Double.IsNegativeInfinity Method

.NET Framework 2.0

Returns a value indicating whether the specified number evaluates to negative infinity.

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

## Syntax

```public:
static bool IsNegativeInfinity (
double d
)
```
```public static boolean IsNegativeInfinity (
double d
)
```
```public static function IsNegativeInfinity (
d : double
) : boolean
```

#### Parameters

d

A double-precision floating-point number.

#### Return Value

true if d evaluates to NegativeInfinity; otherwise, false.

## Remarks

Floating-point operations return NegativeInfinity to signal an overflow condition.

## Example

The following code example illustrates the use of IsNegativeInfinity:

```   // This will return S"true".
Console::WriteLine( "IsNegativeInfinity(-5.0 / 0) == {0}.", Double::IsNegativeInfinity(  -5.0 / zero ) ? (String^)"true" : "false" );
...   if ( d > Double::MaxValue )
{
Console::WriteLine( "Your number is bigger than a double." );
}
...   // This will equal Infinity.
Console::WriteLine( "10.0 minus NegativeInfinity equals {0}.", (10.0 - Double::NegativeInfinity) );

```
```        // This will return "true".
Console.WriteLine("IsNegativeInfinity(-5.0 / 0) == {0}.",
(System.Double.IsNegativeInfinity((-5.0 / 0))) ? "true" : "false");
...        if (d.doubleValue() > Double.MAX_VALUE) {
Console.WriteLine("Your number is bigger than a double.");
}
...        // This will equal Infinity.
Console.WriteLine("10.0 minus NegativeInfinity equals {0}.",
System.Convert.ToString(10.0 - System.Double.NegativeInfinity));

```
