C# Assignment Operators

In this chapter you will learn:
  • What is C# Assignment Operators?
  • How many types of assignment operators in C sharp?
  • How to use assignment operator in program?

The C# assignment operator is generally suffix with arithmetic operators. The symbol of c sharp assignment operator is "=" without quotes. The assignment operator widely used with C# programming. Consider a simple example:

result=num1+num2;

In this example, the equal to (=) assignment operator assigns the value of num1 + num2 into result variable.

Various types of C# assignment operators are mentioned below:

Assignment Operators:

Assignment Operators Usage Examples
= (Equal to) result=5 Assign the value 5 for result
+= (Plus Equal to) result+=5 Same as result=result+5
-= (Minus Equal to) result-=5 Same as result=result-5
*= (Multiply Equal to) result*=5 Same as result=result*5
/= (Divide Equal to) result/=5 Same as result=result/5
%= (Modulus Equal to) result%=5 Same as result=result%5
 
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace assignment_operator
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            int num1, num2;

            num1 = 10;
            num2 = 5;

            num1 += num2; // same as num1=num1+num2
            Console.WriteLine("Add = {0}", num1);

            num1 -= num2; // same as num1=num1-num2
            Console.WriteLine("\n\nSubtraction = {0}", num1);

            num1 *= num2; // same as num1=num1*num2
            Console.WriteLine("\n\nMultiplication={0}", num1);

            num1 %= num2; // same as num1=num1%num2
            Console.WriteLine("\n\nModulus = {0}", num1);

            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}

Output

Add = 15
Subtraction = 10
Multiplication = 50
Modulus = 0
