Double

Synopsis

This represents a 64-bit double-precision floating number as a value type. The value of a double can range, approximately from -1.8x10308 to 1.8x10308 and can be set to one of the following fields: PositiveInfinity, NegativeInfinity, and NaN (not a number). In C#, this type is aliased as double.
