Public Shared Operator <> ( _
    rect1 As Rect, _
    rect2 As Rect _
) As Boolean
public static bool operator !=(
    Rect rect1,
    Rect rect2


Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Rect structures do not have the same x,y,width,height property values; otherwise, false.


In this comparison, two instances with all properties of Double.NaN are considered equal.


A rectangle's position and dimensions are described by Double values. Because Double values can lose precision when operated upon, a comparison between two values that are logically equal might fail.
