Math.Max Method (UInt16, UInt16)

Returns the larger of two 16-bit unsigned integers.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ushort Max(
	ushort val1,
	ushort val2
)

Parameters

val1
Type: System.UInt16
The first of two 16-bit unsigned integers to compare.
val2
Type: System.UInt16
The second of two 16-bit unsigned integers to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt16
Parameter val1 or val2, whichever is larger.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Max method to return and display the greater of two UInt16 variables.


// This example demonstrates Math.Max()
using System;

/*
This example produces the following results:

Display the greater of two values:

Byte   : The greater of   1 and  51 is 51.
Int16  : The greater of  -2 and  52 is 52.
Int32  : The greater of  -3 and  53 is 53.
Int64  : The greater of  -4 and  54 is 54.
Single : The greater of   5 and  55 is 55.
Double : The greater of   6 and  56 is 56.
Decimal: The greater of   7 and  57 is 57.

(The following types are not CLS-compliant.)

SByte  : The greater of 101 and 111 is 111.
UInt16 : The greater of 102 and 112 is 112.
UInt32 : The greater of 103 and 113 is 113.
UInt64 : The greater of 104 and 114 is 114.
