# Point.Inequality(Point, Point) Operator

## Definition

Important

Some information relates to prerelease product that may be substantially modified before itâ€™s released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here.

Compares two Point structures for inequality.

```
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 op_Inequality : System.Windows.Point * System.Windows.Point -> bool`

`Public Shared Operator != (point1 As Point, point2 As Point) As Boolean`

#### Parameters

- point1
- Point

The first point to compare.

- point2
- Point

The second point to compare.

#### Returns

`true`

if `point1`

and `point2`

have different X or Y coordinates; `false`

if `point1`

and `point2`

have the same X and Y coordinates.

## Examples

The following example shows how to check whether two Point structures are not equal, using the overloaded (!=) operator.

```
private Boolean overloadedInequalityOperatorExample()
{
Point point1 = new Point(20, 30);
Point point2 = new Point(45, 70);
// Check whether the two Points are not equal, using the overloaded
// inequality operator.
// areNotEqual is True.
Boolean areNotEqual = (point1 != point2);
return areNotEqual;
}
```

```
Private Function overloadedInequalityOperatorExample() As Boolean
Dim point1 As New Point(20, 30)
Dim point2 As New Point(45, 70)
' Check whether the two Points are not equal, using the overloaded
' inequality operator.
' areNotEqual is True.
Dim areNotEqual As Boolean = (point1 <> point2)
Return areNotEqual
End Function
```

## Remarks

A point's X and Y coordinates are described using Double values. Because Double values can lose precision when operated on, a comparison between two Point values that are logically equal might fail.
