Enumerable.Min Method (IEnumerable<Decimal>)

 

Returns the minimum value in a sequence of Decimal values.

Namespace:   System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

public static decimal Min(
	this IEnumerable<decimal> source
)

Parameters

source
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<Decimal>

A sequence of Decimal values to determine the minimum value of.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal

The minimum value in the sequence.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

InvalidOperationException

source contains no elements.

The Min(IEnumerable<Decimal>) method uses the Decimal implementation of IComparable<T> to compare values.

In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Min() clause translates to an invocation of Min.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Min(IEnumerable<Double>) to determine the minimum value in a sequence.

System_CAPS_noteNote

This code example uses an overload of this overloaded method that is different from the specific overload that this topic describes. To extend the example to this topic, substitute the elements of the source sequence with elements of the appropriate numerical type.

double[] doubles = { 1.5E+104, 9E+103, -2E+103 };

double min = doubles.Min();

Console.WriteLine("The smallest number is {0}.", min);

/*
 This code produces the following output:

 The smallest number is -2E+103.
