Definition

Compares the current ValueTuple<T1,T2,T3,T4,T5,T6,T7,TRest> object to a specified object and returns an integer that indicates whether the current object is before, after, or in the same position as the specified object in the sort order.

 virtual int System.IComparable.CompareTo(System::Object ^ other) = IComparable::CompareTo;
int IComparable.CompareTo (object other);
Function CompareTo (other As Object) As Integer Implements IComparable.CompareTo

Parameters

other
Object Object Object

An object to compare with the current instance.

Returns

A signed integer that indicates the relative position of this instance and obj in the sort order, as shown in the following table.

Value Description
A negative integer This instance precedes other.
Zero This instance and other have the same position in the sort order.
A positive integer This instance follows other.

Remarks

This member is an explicit interface member implementation. It can be used only when the ValueTuple<T1,T2,T3,T4,T5,T6,T7,TRest> instance is cast to an IComparable interface.

This method provides the IComparable.CompareTo implementation for the ValueTuple<T1,T2,T3,T4,T5,T6,T7,TRest> structure. Although the method can be called directly, it is most commonly called by the default overloads of collection-sorting methods, such as Array.Sort(Array) and SortedList.Add, to order the members of a collection.

Caution

The ValueTuple<T1,T2,T3,T4,T5,T6,T7,TRest>.IComparable.CompareTo method is intended for use in sorting operations. It should not be used when the primary purpose of a comparison is to determine whether two objects are equal. To determine whether two objects are equal, call the ValueTuple<T1,T2,T3,T4,T5,T6,T7,TRest>.Equals(Object) method.

This method uses the default object comparer to compare each component.
