Transfers control to a target instruction if the first value is greater than the second value.
[Visual Basic] Public Shared ReadOnly Bgt As OpCode [C#] public static readonly OpCode Bgt; [C++] public: static OpCode Bgt; [JScript] public static var Bgt : OpCode;
The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:
|3D < int32 >||bgt target||Branch to the target instruction at the specified offset if the first value is greater than the second value.|
The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:
- value1 is pushed onto the stack.
- value2 is pushed onto the stack.
- value2 and value1 are popped from the stack; if value1 is greater than value2, the branch operation is performed.
The bgt instruction transfers control to the specified target instruction if value1 is greater than value2. The effect is identical to performing a cgt instruction followed by a brtrue branch to the specific target instruction. The target instruction is represented as a 4-byte signed offset from the beginning of the instruction following the current instruction.
Control can only be transferred to the first of these prefixes if the target instruction has one or more prefix codes. Control transfers into and out of try, catch, filter, and finally blocks cannot be performed by this instruction.
The following Emit constructor overload can use the bgt opcode:
