GT(value_1, value_2, ... )

Description

The GT function returns true if each specified value is greater than the ones following it, and false otherwise. The function takes one or more arguments; it always returns true if it has a single argument.

Types have an order of precedence. When comparing values of different types, they are ranked in the following order, from least to greatest.

  1. Number (integers and decimals: 0.5 < 1 < 1.5 < 2)

  2. Byte

  3. String

  4. Array (ordered lexically, like strings)

  5. Object (ordered lexically, like strings)

  6. Reference

  7. Timestamp

  8. Date

  9. Boolean (false < true)

  10. Null

This means that any Array is always greater than any Number.

Parameters

Argument Type Definition and Requirements

value

Any

A value to be compared.

Returns

A boolean value.

Examples

The query below returns true because the value 3 is greater than the value 2, and the value 2 is greater than the value 1.

client.Query(
    GT(3, 2, 1)
);
BooleanV(True)
result, err := client.Query(
	f.GT(3, 2, 1))

if err != nil {
	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
	fmt.Println(result)
}
true
System.out.println(
    client.query(
        GT(Value(3), Value(2), Value(1))
    ).get());
true
client.query(
  q.GT(3, 2, 1)
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error('Error: %s', err))
true
result = client.query(
  q.gt(3, 2, 1)
)
print(result)
True
client.query(GT(3, 2, 1))
true
