Math.Min Method (UInt32, UInt32)

Returns the smaller of two 32-bit unsigned integers.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

Syntax

'Declaration
<CLSCompliantAttribute(False)> _
Public Shared Function Min ( _
    val1 As UInteger, _
    val2 As UInteger _
) As UInteger
[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static uint Min(
    uint val1,
    uint val2
)

Parameters

  • val1
    Type: System.UInt32
    The first of two 32-bit unsigned integers to compare.
  • val2
    Type: System.UInt32
    The second of two 32-bit unsigned integers to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt32
Parameter val1 or val2, whichever is smaller.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the Min method to return and display the smaller of two UInt32 variables.
