# Decimal.Increment(Decimal) Operator

## Definition

Increments the Decimal operand by 1.

``````public:
static System::Decimal operator ++(System::Decimal d);``````
``public static decimal operator ++ (decimal d);``
``static member op_Increment : decimal -> decimal``
``Public Shared op_Increment (d As Decimal) As Decimal``

#### Parameters

d
Decimal

The value to increment.

#### Returns

The value of `d` incremented by 1.

#### Exceptions

The return value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

## Remarks

The Increment method defines the operation of the increment operator for Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

``````using System;

public class Example
{
public static void Main()
{
Decimal number = 1079.8m;
Console.WriteLine("Original value:    {0:N}", number);
Console.WriteLine("Incremented value: {0:N}", ++number);
}
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       Original value:    1,079.80
//       Incremented value: 1,080.80
``````

Some languages (such as Visual Basic) that lack an increment operator can call the Increment method directly, as the following example shows.

``````Module Example
Public Sub Main()
Dim number As Decimal = 1079.8d
Console.WriteLine("Original value:    {0:N}", number)
Console.WriteLine("Incremented value: {0:N}", Decimal.op_Increment(number))
End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       Original value:    1,079.80
'       Incremented value: 1,080.80
``````

If your language does not support custom operators, call the Add method instead, as the following example shows.

``````using System;

public class Example
{
public static void Main()
{
Decimal number = 1079.8m;
Console.WriteLine("Original value:    {0:N}", number);
}
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       Original value:    1,079.80
//       Incremented value: 1,080.80
``````
``````Module Example
Public Sub Main()
Dim number As Decimal = 1079.8d
Console.WriteLine("Original value:    {0:N}", number)
