示例

下面的示例演示的实现IComparable和必需的CompareTo方法。The following example illustrates the implementation of IComparable and the requisite CompareTo method.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;

public ref class Temperature: public IComparable {
   /// <summary>
   /// IComparable.CompareTo implementation.
   /// </summary>
protected:
   // The value holder
   Double m_value;

public:
   virtual Int32 CompareTo( Object^ obj ) {
   
      if (obj == nullptr) return 1;
      
      if ( obj->GetType() == Temperature::typeid ) {
         Temperature^ temp = dynamic_cast<Temperature^>(obj);

         return m_value.CompareTo( temp->m_value );
      }
      throw gcnew ArgumentException(  "object is not a Temperature" );
   }

   property Double Value {
      Double get() {
         return m_value;
      }
      void set( Double value ) {
         m_value = value;
      }
   }

   property Double Celsius  {
      Double get() {
         return (m_value - 32) / 1.8;
      }
      void set( Double value ) {
         m_value = (value * 1.8) + 32;
      }
   }
};

int main()
{
   ArrayList^ temperatures = gcnew ArrayList;
   // Initialize random number generator.
   Random^ rnd = gcnew Random;

   // Generate 10 temperatures between 0 and 100 randomly.
   for (int ctr = 1; ctr <= 10; ctr++)
   {
      int degrees = rnd->Next(0, 100);
      Temperature^ temp = gcnew Temperature;
      temp->Value = degrees;
      temperatures->Add(temp);
   }

   // Sort ArrayList.
   temperatures->Sort();
      
   for each (Temperature^ temp in temperatures)
      Console::WriteLine(temp->Value);
   return 0;
}
// The example displays the following output to the console (individual
// values may vary because they are randomly generated):
//       2
//       7
//       16

注解

此接口实现的可排序的值类型。This interface is implemented by types whose values can be ordered or sorted. 它需要实现的类型定义一个方法, CompareTo(Object),,该值指示是否在排序顺序中的当前实例的位置是之前,之后,或者与相同类型的第二个对象相同。It requires that implementing types define a single method, CompareTo(Object), that indicates whether the position of the current instance in the sort order is before, after, or the same as a second object of the same type. 实例IComparable实现将自动调用方法等Array.SortArrayList.SortThe instance's IComparable implementation is called automatically by methods such as Array.Sort and ArrayList.Sort.

实现CompareTo(Object)方法必须返回Int32,具有三个值之一下, 表中所示。The implementation of the CompareTo(Object) method must return an Int32 that has one of three values, as shown in the following table.

“值”Value 含义Meaning
小于零Less than zero 当前实例位于指定的对象CompareTo方法排序顺序中的。The current instance precedes the object specified by the CompareTo method in the sort order.
Zero 此当前实例中出现的相同位置在排序顺序中指定的对象作为CompareTo方法。This current instance occurs in the same position in the sort order as the object specified by the CompareTo method.
大于零Greater than zero 此当前实例位于指定的对象CompareTo方法排序顺序中的。This current instance follows the object specified by the CompareTo method in the sort order.

所有数值类型 (如Int32Double) 实现IComparable,这一点与StringChar,并DateTimeAll numeric types (such as Int32 and Double) implement IComparable, as do String, Char, and DateTime. 自定义类型还应提供其自己的实现IComparable以启用要排序或排序的对象实例。Custom types should also provide their own implementation of IComparable to enable object instances to be ordered or sorted.

方法

CompareTo(Object) CompareTo(Object) CompareTo(Object) CompareTo(Object)

将当前实例与同一类型的另一个对象进行比较,并返回一个整数,该整数指示当前实例在排序顺序中的位置是位于另一个对象之前、之后还是与其位置相同。Compares the current instance with another object of the same type and returns an integer that indicates whether the current instance precedes, follows, or occurs in the same position in the sort order as the other object.
