CharacterRange.Inequality(CharacterRange, CharacterRange) Operator

Definition

Compares two CharacterRange objects. Gets a value indicating whether the First or Length values of the two CharacterRange objects are not 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 op_Inequality : 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 inequality.

cr2
CharacterRange

A CharacterRange to compare for inequality.

Returns

Boolean

true to indicate the either the First or Length values of the two CharacterRange objects differ; otherwise, false.

Examples

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

private void CharacterRangeInequality()
{

    // 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("string"), "strings".Length);

    if (range1 != range2)
        MessageBox.Show("The ranges are not equal.");
    else
        MessageBox.Show("The ranges are equal.");
}
Private Sub CharacterRangeInequality() 
    
    ' 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("string"), "strings".Length)
    
    If range1 <> range2 Then
        MessageBox.Show("The ranges are not equal.")
    Else
        MessageBox.Show("The ranges are equal.")
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

The Inequality method returns the opposite of the Equality method.

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