TimeSpan.Equality(TimeSpan, TimeSpan) TimeSpan.Equality(TimeSpan, TimeSpan) TimeSpan.Equality(TimeSpan, TimeSpan) TimeSpan.Equality(TimeSpan, TimeSpan) Operator

Definition

Indicates whether two TimeSpan instances are equal.

public:
 static bool operator ==(TimeSpan t1, TimeSpan t2);
public static bool operator == (TimeSpan t1, TimeSpan t2);
static member ( = ) : TimeSpan * TimeSpan -> bool
Public Shared Operator == (t1 As TimeSpan, t2 As TimeSpan) As Boolean

Parameters

t1
TimeSpan TimeSpan TimeSpan TimeSpan

The first time interval to compare.

t2
TimeSpan TimeSpan TimeSpan TimeSpan

The second time interval to compare.

Returns

true if the values of t1 and t2 are equal; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example compares several TimeSpan objects to a reference TimeSpan using the Equality operator.

// Example of the TimeSpan relational operators.
using namespace System;
const __wchar_t * protoFmt = L"{0,35}    {1}";

// Compare TimeSpan parameters, and display them with the results.

   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left >= Right", Left >= Right );
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left != Right", Left != Right );
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left <  Right", Left < Right );
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left <= Right", Left <= Right );
}

int main()
{
   TimeSpan Left = TimeSpan(2,0,0);
   Console::WriteLine( "This example of the TimeSpan relational operators "
   "generates \nthe following output. It creates several "
   "different TimeSpan \nobjects and compares them with "
