DependencyObject.Equals Method (Object)

Determines whether a provided DependencyObject is equivalent to the current DependencyObject.

Namespace: System.Windows
Assembly: WindowsBase (in windowsbase.dll)

public override sealed bool Equals (
	Object obj
)
public final boolean Equals (
	Object obj
)
public override final function Equals (
	obj : Object
) : boolean
You cannot use methods in XAML.

Parameters

obj

The DependencyObject to compare to the current instance.

Return Value

true if the two instances are the same; otherwise, false.

This implementation is reference equality only, and does not attempt to evaluate value equality of the contained properties.

Notes to Inheritors: DependencyObject overrides and then seals two Object methods: Equals and GetHashCode. The overrides call the Object implementations, resulting in an object equality behavior. The purpose of these deliberate overrides is to prevent derived classes from trying to define a value equality for a DependencyObject. Value equalities for DependencyObject will never be accurate because of the innate property value-changing capabilities of a DependencyObject, such as data binding and the WPF property system.
