[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Returns a value indicating whether a specified Decimal is greater than another specified Decimal.

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

Public Shared Operator > ( _
    d1 As Decimal, _
    d2 As Decimal _
) As Boolean
public static bool operator >(
    decimal d1,
    decimal d2
)

Parameters

Return Value

Type: System..::.Boolean
true if d1 is greater than d2; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following code example compares several Decimal values to a reference Decimal value using the Greater Than operator.
