Examples

The following example demonstrates the Equals method.

UInt16 myVariable2 = 10;

//Display the declaring type.
Console::WriteLine( "\nType of 'myVariable1' is '{0}' and  value is : {1}", myVariable1.GetType(), myVariable1 );
Console::WriteLine( "Type of 'myVariable2' is '{0}' and  value is : {1}", myVariable2.GetType(), myVariable2 );

// Compare 'myVariable1' instance with 'myVariable2' Object.
if ( myVariable1.Equals( myVariable2 ) )
      Console::WriteLine( "\nStructures 'myVariable1' and 'myVariable2' are equal" );
else
      Console::WriteLine( "\nStructures 'myVariable1' and 'myVariable2' are not equal" );
   UInt16 myVariable1 = 10;
   UInt16 myVariable2 = 10;

   //Display the declaring type.
   Console.WriteLine("\nType of 'myVariable1' is '{0}' and"+
        " value is :{1}",myVariable1.GetType(), myVariable1); 
   Console.WriteLine("Type of 'myVariable2' is '{0}' and"+
        " value is :{1}",myVariable2.GetType(), myVariable2);

   // Compare 'myVariable1' instance with 'myVariable2' Object.
   if( myVariable1.Equals( myVariable2 ) )
      Console.WriteLine( "\nStructures 'myVariable1' and "+
            "'myVariable2' are equal");
   else
      Console.WriteLine( "\nStructures 'myVariable1' and "+
            "'myVariable2' are not equal");
   
   Dim myVariable1 As UInt16 = UInt16.Parse(10)
   Dim myVariable2 As UInt16 = UInt16.Parse(10)

   ' Display the declaring type.
   Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "Type of 'myVariable1' is '{0}' and" +  _
         " value is :{1}", myVariable1.GetType().ToString(), myVariable1.ToString())
   Console.WriteLine("Type of 'myVariable2' is '{0}' and" +  _
            " value is :{1}" , myVariable2.GetType().ToString(), myVariable2.ToString())
   
   ' Compare 'myVariable1' instance with 'myVariable2' Object.
   If myVariable1.Equals(myVariable2) Then
      Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "Structures 'myVariable1' and" +  _ 
            " 'myVariable2' are equal")

Notes to Callers

Compiler overload resolution may account for an apparent difference in the behavior of the two Equals(UInt16) method overloads. If an implicit conversion between the obj argument and a UInt16 is defined and the argument is not typed as an Object, compilers perform an implicit conversion and call the Equals(UInt16) method. Otherwise, they call the Equals(Object) method, which always returns false if its obj argument is not a UInt16 value. The following example illustrates the difference in behavior between the two method overloads. In the case of a Byte value, the first comparison returns true because the compiler automatically performs a widening conversion and calls the Equals(UInt16) method, whereas the second comparison returns false because the compiler calls the Equals(Object) method.

Equals(UInt16) Equals(UInt16) Equals(UInt16) Equals(UInt16)

Returns a value indicating whether this instance is equal to a specified UInt16 value.

public:
 virtual bool Equals(System::UInt16 obj);
public bool Equals (ushort obj);
override this.Equals : uint16 -> bool
Public Function Equals (obj As UShort) As Boolean

Parameters

obj
UInt16 UInt16 UInt16 UInt16

A 16-bit unsigned integer to compare to this instance.

Returns

true if obj has the same value as this instance; otherwise, false.

Implements

Remarks

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

Notes to Callers

Compiler overload resolution may account for an apparent difference in the behavior of the two Equals(UInt16) method overloads. If an implicit conversion between the obj argument and a UInt16 is defined and the argument is not typed as an Object, compilers perform an implicit conversion and call the Equals(UInt16) method. Otherwise, they call the Equals(Object) method, which always returns false if its obj argument is not a UInt16 value. The following example illustrates the difference in behavior between the two method overloads. In the case of a Byte value, the first comparison returns true because the compiler automatically performs a widening conversion and calls the Equals(UInt16) method, whereas the second comparison returns false because the compiler calls the Equals(Object) method.
