Examples

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code creates two Font objects and then tests whether they are equivalent.

public:
   void Equals_Example( PaintEventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      // Create a Font object.
      System::Drawing::Font^ firstFont = gcnew System::Drawing::Font( "Arial",16 );

      // Create a second Font object.
      System::Drawing::Font^ secondFont = gcnew System::Drawing::Font( gcnew FontFamily( "Arial" ),16 );

      // Test to see if firstFont is identical to secondFont.
      bool fontTest = firstFont->Equals( secondFont );

      // Display a message box with the result of the test.
      MessageBox::Show( fontTest.ToString() );
   }
public void Equals_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create a Font object.
    Font firstFont = new Font("Arial", 16);
             
    // Create a second Font object.
    Font secondFont = new Font(new FontFamily("Arial"), 16);
             
    // Test to see if firstFont is identical to secondFont.
    bool fontTest = firstFont.Equals(secondFont);
             
    // Display a message box with the result of the test.
    MessageBox.Show(fontTest.ToString());
}
Public Sub Equals_Example(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create a Font object.
    Dim firstFont As New Font("Arial", 16)

    ' Create a second Font object.
    Dim secondFont As New Font(New FontFamily("Arial"), 16)

    ' Test to see if firstFont is identical to secondFont.
    Dim fontTest As Boolean = firstFont.Equals(secondFont)

    ' Display a message box with the result of the test.
    MessageBox.Show(fontTest.ToString())
End Sub
