LT

LT(value_1, value_2, ...)

Description

The LT function returns true if each specified value is less 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 Number is always less than any Array.

Parameters

Parameter Type Definition and Requirements

value

Any

A value to be compared.

Returns

A Boolean value indicating whether each value is less than the subsequent values.

Examples

The following query returns true because the value 1 is less than the value 2, and the value 2 is less than the value 3:

try
{
    Value result = await client.Query(
        LT(1, 2, 3)
    );
    Console.WriteLine(result);
}
catch (Exception e)
{
    Console.WriteLine($"ERROR: {e.Message}");
}
BooleanV(True)
result, err := client.Query(
	f.LT(1, 2, 3))

if err != nil {
	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
	fmt.Println(result)
}
true
System.out.println(
    client.query(LT(Value(1), Value(2), Value(3)))
    .get());
true
client.query(
  q.LT(1, 2, 3)
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error(
  'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
  err.name,
  err.message,
  err.errors()[0].description,
))
true
result = client.query(
  q.lt(1, 2, 3)
)
print(result)
True
LT(1, 2, 3)
true
