Single.MaxValue Single.MaxValue Single.MaxValue Single.MaxValue Field

Definition

Represents the largest possible value of Single. This field is constant.

public: float MaxValue = 3.402823E+38;
public const float MaxValue = 3.402823E+38;
val mutable MaxValue : single
Public Const MaxValue As Single  = 3.402823E+38

Field Value

Examples

The following code example demonstrates the MaxValue constant.

if ( s > Single::MaxValue )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "Your number is larger than a Single." );
}
if (s > Single.MaxValue)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Your number is larger than a Single.");
}
If S > Single.MaxValue Then
    Console.WriteLine("Your number is larger than a Single.")
End If

Remarks

The value of this constant is positive 3.40282347E+38.

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

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      float result1 = 1.867e38f + 2.385e38f;
      Console.WriteLine("{0} (Positive Infinity: {1})", 
                        result1, Single.IsPositiveInfinity(result1));
      
      float result2 = 1.5935e25f * 7.948e20f;
      Console.WriteLine("{0} (Positive Infinity: {1})", 
                        result2, Single.IsPositiveInfinity(result2));
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//    Infinity (Positive Infinity: True)
//    Infinity (Positive Infinity: True)
Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim result1 As Single = 1.867e38 + 2.385e38
      Console.WriteLine("{0} (Positive Infinity: {1})", 
                        result1, Single.IsPositiveInfinity(result1))
      
      Dim result2 As Single = 1.5935e25 * 7.948e20
      Console.WriteLine("{0} (Positive Infinity: {1})", 
                        result2, Single.IsPositiveInfinity(result2))
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'    Infinity (Positive Infinity: True)
'    Infinity (Positive Infinity: True)
