    Object obj
)

Parameters

  • obj
    Type: System.Object
    The object to compare with this instance.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
MemberAccessException

Remarks

Two delegates are equal if they are not nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) and are of exactly the same type, their invocation lists contain the same number of elements, and every element in the invocation list of the first delegate is equal to the corresponding element in the invocation list of the second delegate.

Two invocation list elements are equal if they invoke the same instance method on the same target instance, or they invoke the same static method.
