UTF8Encoding.Equals(Object) UTF8Encoding.Equals(Object) UTF8Encoding.Equals(Object) UTF8Encoding.Equals(Object) Method

Definition

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current UTF8Encoding object.

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

Parameters

value
Object Object Object Object

The object to compare with the current instance.

Returns

true if value is an instance of UTF8Encoding and is equal to the current object; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example uses the Equals method to test whether the current UTF8Encoding object is equal to a different UTF8Encoding object. Four UTF8Encoding objects are created and compared and the results of the comparisons are displayed.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Text;
void DescribeEquivalence( Boolean isEquivalent )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "{0} equivalent encoding.", (isEquivalent ? (String^)"An" : "Not an") );
}

int main()
{
   UTF8Encoding^ utf8 = gcnew UTF8Encoding;
   UTF8Encoding^ utf8true = gcnew UTF8Encoding( true );
   UTF8Encoding^ utf8truetrue = gcnew UTF8Encoding( true,true );
   UTF8Encoding^ utf8falsetrue = gcnew UTF8Encoding( false,true );
   DescribeEquivalence( utf8->Equals( utf8 ) );
   DescribeEquivalence( utf8->Equals( utf8true ) );
   DescribeEquivalence( utf8->Equals( utf8truetrue ) );
   DescribeEquivalence( utf8->Equals( utf8falsetrue ) );
   DescribeEquivalence( utf8true->Equals( utf8 ) );
   DescribeEquivalence( utf8true->Equals( utf8true ) );
   DescribeEquivalence( utf8true->Equals( utf8truetrue ) );
   DescribeEquivalence( utf8true->Equals( utf8falsetrue ) );

Remarks

Two UTF8Encoding objects are considered equal if all of the following conditions are true:

  • Both objects provide the byte order mark, or both do not.

  • Both objects use the same encoder fallback.

  • Both objects use the same decoder fallback.
