Definition

Represents the largest possible value of a Double. This field is constant.

public: double MaxValue = 1.79769313486232E+308;
public const double MaxValue = 1.79769313486232E+308;
val mutable MaxValue : double
Public Const MaxValue As Double  = 1.79769313486232E+308

Field Value

Examples

The following code example illustrates the use of MaxValue:

public ref class Temperature
{
public:
   static property double MinValue 
   {
      double get()
      {
         return Double::MinValue;
      }
   }

   static property double MaxValue 
   {
      double get()
      {
         return Double::MaxValue;
      }
   }

protected:
   // The value holder
   double m_value;

public:
   property double Value 
   {
      double get()
      {
         return m_value;
      }
      void set( double value )
      {
         m_value = value;
      }
   }

   property double Celsius 
   {
      double get()
      {
         return (m_value - 32.0) / 1.8;
      }
      void set( double value )
      {
         m_value = 1.8 * value + 32.0;
      }
   }
};
public class Temperature {
	public static double MinValue {
		get {
			return Double.MinValue;
		}
	}

	public static double MaxValue {
		get {
			return Double.MaxValue;
		}
	}

	// The value holder
	protected double m_value;

	public double Value {
		get {
			return m_value;
		}
		set {
			m_value = value;
		}
	}

	public double Celsius {
		get {
			return (m_value-32.0)/1.8;
		}
		set {
			m_value = 1.8*value+32.0;
		}
	}
}

Remarks

The value of this constant is positive 1.7976931348623157E+308.

The result of an operation that exceeds Double.MaxValue is Double.PositiveInfinity. In the following example, Double.PositiveInfinity results from addition, multiplication, and exponentiation operations when the result exceeds Double.MaxValue.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      double result1 = 7.997e307 + 9.985e307;
      Console.WriteLine("{0} (Positive Infinity: {1})", 
                        result1, Double.IsPositiveInfinity(result1));
      
      double result2 = 1.5935e250 * 7.948e110;
      Console.WriteLine("{0} (Positive Infinity: {1})", 
                        result2, Double.IsPositiveInfinity(result2));
      
      double result3 = Math.Pow(1.256e100, 1.34e20);
      Console.WriteLine("{0} (Positive Infinity: {1})", 
                        result3, Double.IsPositiveInfinity(result3));
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//    Infinity (Positive Infinity: True)
//    Infinity (Positive Infinity: True)
//    Infinity (Positive Infinity: True)
Module Example

      Dim result1 As Double = 7.997e307 + 9.985e307
      Console.WriteLine("{0} (Positive Infinity: {1})",
