Basic types

All Basic types can be configured as unique. Basic types have a value and no members. The following types are basic types:

  • Numeric Basic Types
  • string
  • char
  • enums

Numeric Basic Types

Signed integralsbyte, short, int, long
Unsigned integralbyte, ushort, uint, ulong
IEEE binary floating-pointfloat, double
High-precision decimal floating-pointdecimal

Unique value of basic types

Numeric Basic Types
The algorithm to determine a new unique number acts on the underlying bit sequence of a certain numeric type. It alters the bit sequence to get a new not before seen number, till the definition space of the type is fully used, then it will start at the beginning.

Uses Guid.NewGuid().ToString();.

Uses the same algorithm as the Numeric Basic Types.
