CharacterRange.Equality(CharacterRange, CharacterRange) Operator

Definition

Compares two CharacterRange objects. Gets a value indicating whether the First and Length values of the two CharacterRange objects are equal.

public:
 static bool operator ==(System::Drawing::CharacterRange cr1, System::Drawing::CharacterRange cr2);
public static bool operator == (System.Drawing.CharacterRange cr1, System.Drawing.CharacterRange cr2);
static member ( = ) : System.Drawing.CharacterRange * System.Drawing.CharacterRange -> bool
Public Shared Operator == (cr1 As CharacterRange, cr2 As CharacterRange) As Boolean

Parameters

cr1
CharacterRange

A CharacterRange to compare for equality.

cr2
CharacterRange

A CharacterRange to compare for equality.

Returns

true to indicate the two CharacterRange objects have the same First and Length values; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the Equality operator. To run this example, paste it into a Windows Form. Handle the form's Paint event and call the CharacterRangeEquality1 method from the Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

    private void CharacterRangeEquality1()
    {

        // Declare the string to draw.
        string message = "Strings or strings; that is the question.";

        // Compare the ranges for equality. The should not be equal.
        CharacterRange range1 = 
            new CharacterRange(message.IndexOf("Strings"), "Strings".Length);
        CharacterRange range2 = 
            new CharacterRange(message.IndexOf("strings"), "strings".Length);

        if (range1 == range2)
            MessageBox.Show("The ranges are equal.");
        else
            MessageBox.Show("The ranges are not equal.");

    }
Private Sub CharacterRangeEquality1() 
    
    ' Declare the string to draw.
    Dim message As String = "Strings or strings; that is the question."
    
    ' Compare the ranges for equality. The should not be equal.
    Dim range1 As New CharacterRange(message.IndexOf("Strings"), _
        "Strings".Length)
    Dim range2 As New CharacterRange(message.IndexOf("strings"), _
        "strings".Length)
    
    If range1 = range2 Then
        MessageBox.Show("The ranges are equal.")
    Else
        MessageBox.Show("The ranges are not equal.")
    End If
 
End Sub

Remarks

You can also test for equality using the Equals method.

The equivalent method for this operator is CharacterRange.Equals(Object)
