Decimal.UnaryPlus Operator

Returns the value of the Decimal operand (the sign of the operand is unchanged).

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

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Shared Operator + ( _
    d As Decimal _
) As Decimal
public static decimal operator +(
    decimal d
)

Parameters

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The value of the operand, d.

Examples

The following code example applies the Unary Plus operator to several Decimal values.

' Example of the Decimal increment, decrement, unary negation, and 
' unary plus operators.
