Nullable<T>::GetValueOrDefault Method ()

 

Retrieves the value of the current Nullable<T> object, or the object's default value.

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

public:
T GetValueOrDefault()

Return Value

Type: T

The value of the Value property if the HasValue property is true; otherwise, the default value of the current Nullable<T> object. The type of the default value is the type argument of the current Nullable<T> object, and the value of the default value consists solely of binary zeroes.

The GetValueOrDefault method returns a value even if the HasValue property is false (unlike the Value property, which throws an exception).

The following code example retrieves the value of a Nullable<T> object if that value is defined; otherwise, it retrieves the default value or a specific default value.
