A single-precision floating-point number.

Return Value

true if f evaluates to PositiveInfinity; otherwise, false.

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

The following code example demonstrates the IsPositiveInfinity method.

// This will return true.
Console.WriteLine("IsPositiveInfinity(4.0F / 0) == {0}.", Single.IsPositiveInfinity(4.0F / 0) ? "true" : "false");

// This will return true.
Console.WriteLine("IsPositiveInfinity(4.0F / 0) == {0}.",
    (Single.IsPositiveInfinity((4 / zero))) ? "true" : "false");
