Single.IsNaN Method

Returns a value indicating whether the specified number evaluates to not a number (NaN).

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

public static bool IsNaN (
	float f
)
public static boolean IsNaN (
	float f
)
public static function IsNaN (
	f : float
) : boolean
Not applicable.

Parameters

f

A single-precision floating-point number.

Return Value

true if f evaluates to not a number (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.

The following code example demonstrates the IsNaN method.

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

// This will return true.
if(Float.isNaN((0 / zero))) {
    Console.WriteLine("Single.IsNan() can determine whether a"
        + " value is not-a-number.");
}
