This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

public static int CompareString (string Left, string Right, bool TextCompare);
static member CompareString : string * string * bool -> int
Public Shared Function CompareString (Left As String, Right As String, TextCompare As Boolean) As Integer

Parameters

Left
String String String String

Required. Any String expression.

Right

Remarks

This class supports the Visual Basic compiler and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

When the Visual Basic equality operator is used to compare two strings, it passes the strings to the CompareString method along with a value of False for the TextCompare argument. This performs a case-sensitive comparison that is either ordinal or based on the current culture, depending on the value of the Option Compare statement.
