Double.IsNaN Method

Returns a value indicating whether the specified number evaluates to a value that is not a number (NaN).

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

Syntax

'Declaration
<SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute> _
Public Shared Function IsNaN ( _
    d As Double _
) As Boolean
[SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute]
public static bool IsNaN(
    double d
)

Parameters

  • d
    Type: System.Double
    A double-precision floating-point number.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if d evaluates to NaN; otherwise, false.

Remarks

Floating-point operations return NaN to signal that that result of the operation is undefined. For example, dividing 0.0 by 0.0 results in NaN.

Examples

The following example illustrates the use of IsNaN:

' This will return true.
If Double.IsNaN(0 / zero) Then
   outputBlock.Text &= "Double.IsNan() can determine whether a value is not-a-number." & vbCrLf
End If
// This will return true.
if (Double.IsNaN(0 / zero))
{
   outputBlock.Text += "Double.IsNan() can determine whether a value is not-a-number." + "\n";
}
