# Point.Equality(Point, Point) Operator

## Definition

Compares two Point structures for equality.

``````public:
static bool operator ==(System::Windows::Point point1, System::Windows::Point point2);``````
``public static bool operator == (System.Windows.Point point1, System.Windows.Point point2);``
``static member ( = ) : System.Windows.Point * System.Windows.Point -> bool``
``Public Shared Operator == (point1 As Point, point2 As Point) As Boolean``

#### Parameters

point1
Point

The first Point structure to compare.

point2
Point

The second Point structure to compare.

#### Returns

Boolean

`true` if both the X and Y coordinates of `point1` and `point2` are equal; otherwise, `false`.

## Examples

The following example shows how to check if two Point structures are equal using the overloaded (==) operator.

``````private Boolean overloadedEqualityOperatorExample()
{
Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);
Point point2 = new Point(15, 40);

// Check if two Points are equal using the overloaded equality operator.
// areEqual is False.
Boolean areEqual = (point1 == point2);

return areEqual;
}
``````
``````Private Function overloadedEqualityOperatorExample() As Boolean
Dim point1 As New Point(10, 5)
Dim point2 As New Point(15, 40)

' Check if two Points are equal using the overloaded equality operator.
' areEqual is False.
Dim areEqual As Boolean = (point1 = point2)

Return areEqual

End Function
``````

## Remarks

A point's coordinates are described using Double values. Because the value of Double can lose precision when arithmetic operations are performed on them, a comparison between two Point values that are logically equal might fail.
