[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

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

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

Public Overrides Function Equals ( _
    obj As Object _
) As Boolean
public override bool Equals(
    Object obj
)

Parameters

  • obj
    Type: System..::.Object
    An object to compare with this instance, or nullNothingnullptra null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

Type: System..::.Boolean
true if obj is an instance of Byte and equals the value of this instance; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following code example determines whether the first Byte value is equal to the second Byte value, and whether the first Byte value is equal to the boxed version of the second Byte value.

' This code example demonstrates the System.Byte.Equals(Object) and
' System.Byte.Equals(Byte) methods.


Class Example
   Public Shared Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)
      Dim byteVal1 As Byte = &H7F
      Dim byteVal2 As Byte = 127
      Dim objectVal3 As Object = byteVal2
      '
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("byteVal1 = {0}, byteVal2 = {1}, objectVal3 = {2}" & vbCrLf, _
                        byteVal1, byteVal2, objectVal3) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(byteVal2)) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(objectVal3)) & vbCrLf
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'Sample

'
'This code example produces the following results:
'
'byteVal1 = 127, byteVal2 = 127, objectVal3 = 127
'
'byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: True
'byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: True
