UInt64 Data Type

Holds unsigned 64-bit (8-byte) integer values in the range 0–18,446,744,073,709,551,615.


Default value
When you declare a variable of type UInt64 and do not initialize it, its default value is zero (0).

If you use the negation operator (-) on an unsigned type, ViviFire gives a warning that this operation is usually an error.

If you subtract a larger number from a smaller number, the result is calculated as follows:

number Mod UInt64.Max + 1
Type changes
UInt64 widens to Int128, UInt128, Real32, Real64, Real, or Real128 without risk of overflow.
Type characters
UInt64 has no type characters.

Shared methods and properties

uInt64.Default As UInt64
Returns the default value, 0.
UInt64.Max As UInt64
Returns the maximum positive value.
UInt64.Min As UInt64
Returns the minimum value. This is always zero (0)
UInt64.Parse(str As String, Optional #fmt As Format) As UInt64
Tries to parse a string that shows as an integer.
If #fmt is not given or is #Null, then it tries to parse str as a decimal (base-10) integer. Or you can be explicit with Format.Base10.
UInt64.Size As Int
Returns the number of available bytes. This is always 8.


Example 1

Dim foo As UInt64

Example 2

Dim low As UInt64 = 0, high As UInt64 = 100
Dim result As UInt64 = low - high
After execution
low0 (&H0000000000000000)
high100 (&H0000000000000064)
result18446744073709551516 (&HFFFFFFFFFFFFFF9C)
