LessThan(Int64, BigInteger) LessThan(Int64, BigInteger) LessThan(Int64, BigInteger) LessThan(Int64, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit signed integer is less than a BigInteger value.

LessThan(BigInteger, Int64) LessThan(BigInteger, Int64) LessThan(BigInteger, Int64) LessThan(BigInteger, Int64)

Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is less than a 64-bit signed integer.

LessThan(BigInteger, BigInteger) LessThan(BigInteger, BigInteger) LessThan(BigInteger, BigInteger) LessThan(BigInteger, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is less than another BigInteger value.

LessThan(BigInteger, UInt64) LessThan(BigInteger, UInt64) LessThan(BigInteger, UInt64) LessThan(BigInteger, UInt64)

Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is less than a 64-bit unsigned integer.

LessThan(UInt64, BigInteger) LessThan(UInt64, BigInteger) LessThan(UInt64, BigInteger) LessThan(UInt64, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit unsigned integer is less than a BigInteger value.

LessThan(Int64, BigInteger) LessThan(Int64, BigInteger) LessThan(Int64, BigInteger) LessThan(Int64, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit signed integer is less than a BigInteger value.

public:
 static bool operator <(long left, System::Numerics::BigInteger right);
public static bool operator < (long left, System.Numerics.BigInteger right);
static member ( < ) : int64 * System.Numerics.BigInteger -> bool
Public Shared Operator < (left As Long, right As BigInteger) As Boolean

Parameters

left
Int64 Int64 Int64 Int64

The first value to compare.

right
BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger

The second value to compare.

Returns

true if left is less than right; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The LessThan method defines the operation of the less than operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

BigInteger number = BigInteger.Parse("9801324316220166912");
if (Int64.MaxValue < number)
{
   // Do something.
}
else
{
   // Do something else.
}      
Dim number As BigInteger = BigInteger.Parse("9801324316220166912")
If Int64.MaxValue < number Then
   ' Do something.
Else
   ' Do something else.
End If      

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.CompareTo(Int64) method instead. Some languages can also call the LessThan(Int64, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.

Dim number As BigInteger = BigInteger.Parse("9801324316220166912")
If BigInteger.op_LessThan(Int64.MaxValue, number) Then
   ' Do something.
Else
   ' Do something else.
End If      

If left is a Byte, Int16, Int32, SByte, UInt16, or UInt32 value, it is implicitly converted to an Int64 value when the operation is performed.

The equivalent method for this operator is BigInteger.CompareTo(Int64).

Remarks

The LessThan method defines the operation of the less than operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

BigInteger number2 = 345145625;
BigInteger number3 = 945834724;
Console.WriteLine(number1 < number2);              // Displays False
Console.WriteLine(number1 < number3);              // Displays True
Dim number1 As BigInteger = 945834723
Dim number2 As BigInteger = 345145625
Dim number3 As BigInteger = 945834724 
Console.WriteLine(number1 < number2)                  ' Displays False
Console.WriteLine(number1 < number3)                  ' Displays True

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.Compare method instead. Some languages can also call the LessThan(BigInteger, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.

Dim numberA As BigInteger = 945834723
Dim numberB As BigInteger = 345145625
Dim numberC As BigInteger = 945834724 
Console.WriteLine(BigInteger.op_LessThan(numberA, numberB))    ' Displays False
Console.WriteLine(BigInteger.op_LessThan(numberA, numberC))    ' Displays True

The equivalent method for this operator is BigInteger.Compare(BigInteger, BigInteger).
