Double.Equality(Double, Double) Operator

Definition

Returns a value that indicates whether two specified Double values are equal.

public:
 static bool operator ==(double left, double right);
public static bool operator == (double left, double right);
static member ( = ) : double * double -> bool
Public Shared Operator == (left As Double, right As Double) As Boolean

Parameters

left
Double

The first value to compare.

right
Double

The second value to compare.

Returns

true if left and right are equal; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The Equality method defines the equality operator for Double values.

If two Double.NaN values are tested for equality by using the equality operator, the result is false; two Double.NaN values are not considered equal. If they are tested for equality by calling the Equals method, the result is true. When you want to determine whether the value of a Double is not a number (NaN), an alternative is to call the IsNaN method.
