Decimal.Modulus(Decimal, Decimal) Decimal.Modulus(Decimal, Decimal) Decimal.Modulus(Decimal, Decimal) Decimal.Modulus(Decimal, Decimal) Operator

Definition

Returns the remainder resulting from dividing two specified Decimal values.

public:
 static System::Decimal operator %(System::Decimal d1, System::Decimal d2);
public static decimal operator % (decimal d1, decimal d2);
static member ( % ) : decimal * decimal -> decimal
Public Shared Operator Mod (d1 As Decimal, d2 As Decimal) As Decimal

Parameters

d1
Decimal Decimal Decimal Decimal

The dividend.

d2
Decimal Decimal Decimal Decimal

The divisor.

Returns

The remainder resulting from dividing d1 by d2.

Exceptions

Remarks

The Modulus operator defines the remainder operation that returns the remainder resulting from dividing two specified Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Decimal number1 = 16.8m;
      Decimal number2 = 4.1m;
      Decimal number3 = number1 % number2;
      Console.WriteLine("{0:N2} % {1:N2} = {2:N2}", 
                        number1, number2, number3);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//        16.80 % 4.10 = 0.40
Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim number1 As Decimal = 16.8d 
      Dim number2 As Decimal = 4.1d 
      Dim number3 As Decimal = number1 Mod number2
      Console.WriteLine("{0:N2} Mod {1:N2} = {2:N2}", 
                        number1, number2, number3)
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       16.80 Mod 4.10 = 0.40

The sign of the value returned by the remainder operation depends on the sign of dividend. If dividend is positive, the remainder operation returns a positive result; if it is negative, the remainder operation returns a negative result.

The equivalent method for this operator is Decimal.Remainder(Decimal, Decimal). If the language you're using doesn't support custom operators, call the Remainder method instead.
