Sign(Int16) Sign(Int16) Sign(Int16) Sign(Int16)

Restituisce un intero che indica il segno di un intero con firma a 16 bit.Returns an integer that indicates the sign of a 16-bit signed integer.

public:
 static int Sign(short value);
public static int Sign (short value);
static member Sign : int16 -> int
Public Shared Function Sign (value As Short) As Integer

Parametri

value
Int16 Int16 Int16 Int16

Numero con segno.A signed number.

Restituisce

Numero che indica il segno di value, come illustrato nella tabella seguente.A number that indicates the sign of value, as shown in the following table.

Valore restituitoReturn value SignificatoMeaning
-1-1 value è minore di zero.value is less than zero.
00 value è uguale a zero.value is equal to zero.
11 value è maggiore di zero.value is greater than zero.
