Byte.Equals Method

Definition

Returns a value indicating whether two instances of Byte represent the same value.

Overloads

Equals(Byte)

Returns a value indicating whether this instance and a specified Byte object represent the same value.

Equals(Object)

Returns a value indicating whether this instance is equal to a specified object.

Equals(Byte)

Returns a value indicating whether this instance and a specified Byte object represent the same value.

public:
 virtual bool Equals(System::Byte obj);
public bool Equals (byte obj);
override this.Equals : byte -> bool
Public Function Equals (obj As Byte) As Boolean

Parameters

obj
Byte

An object to compare to this instance.

Returns

true if obj is equal to this instance; otherwise, false.

Implements

Examples

The following code example determines whether the first Byte value is equal to the second Byte value, and whether the first Byte value is equal to the boxed version of the second Byte value.

using namespace System;

void main()
{
    Byte   byteVal1 = 0x7f;
    Byte   byteVal2 = 127;
    Object^ objectVal3 = byteVal2;

    Console::WriteLine("byteVal1 = {0}, byteVal2 = {1}, objectVal3 = {2}\n",
                       byteVal1, byteVal2, objectVal3);
    Console::WriteLine("byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(byteVal2));
    Console::WriteLine("byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(objectVal3));
}
/*
This example displays the following output:
      byteVal1 = 127, byteVal2 = 127, objectVal3 = 127

      byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: True
      byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: True

// System.Byte.Equals(Byte) methods.

'

Remarks

This method implements the System.IEquatable<T> interface, and performs slightly better than Equals(Object) because it does not have to convert the obj parameter to an object.

Equals(Object)

Returns a value indicating whether this instance is equal to a specified object.

public:
 override bool Equals(System::Object ^ obj);
public override bool Equals (object obj);
override this.Equals : obj -> bool
Public Overrides Function Equals (obj As Object) As Boolean

Parameters

obj
Object

An object to compare with this instance, or null.

Returns

true if obj is an instance of Byte and equals the value of this instance; otherwise, false.
