TimeSpan.Equals Method (TimeSpan, TimeSpan)

Returns a value indicating whether two specified instances of TimeSpan are equal.

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

public static bool Equals (
	TimeSpan t1,
	TimeSpan t2
)
public static boolean Equals (
	TimeSpan t1, 
	TimeSpan t2
)
public static function Equals (
	t1 : TimeSpan, 
	t2 : TimeSpan
) : boolean

Parameters

t1

A TimeSpan.

t2

A TimeSpan.

Return Value

true if the values of t1 and t2 are equal; otherwise, false.

The following code example compares several TimeSpan objects to a reference TimeSpan object using the static Equals method.

// Example of the TimeSpan.Compare( TimeSpan, TimeSpan ) and 
// TimeSpan.Equals( TimeSpan, TimeSpan ) methods.
