Tuple(Of T1, T2, T3).Equals Method

Returns a value that indicates whether the current Tuple(Of T1, T2, T3) object is equal to a specified object.

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

'Declaration
Public Overrides Function Equals ( _
	obj As Object _
) As Boolean

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Object

The object to compare with this instance.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the current instance is equal to the specified object; otherwise, false.

The obj parameter is considered to be equal to the current instance under the following conditions:

  • It is a Tuple(Of T1, T2, T3) object.

  • Its three components are of the same types as the current instance.

  • Its three components are equal to those of the current instance. Equality is determined by the default object equality comparer for each component.

The following example calls the Tuple(Of T1, T2, T3).Equals(Object) method to determine whether any of the objects in an array of Tuple(Of T1, T2, T3) objects are equal to one another. The output reflects the fact that the Equals(Object) method returns true when comparing Tuple(Of T1, T2, T3) objects whose components have equal values.

Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim scores() = 
              { Tuple.Create("Ed", 78.8, 8),
                Tuple.Create("Abbey", 92.1, 9), 
                Tuple.Create("Ed", 71.2, 9),
                Tuple.Create("Sam", 91.7, 8), 
                Tuple.Create("Ed", 71.2, 5),
                Tuple.Create("Penelope", 82.9, 8),
                Tuple.Create("Ed", 71.2, 9),
                Tuple.Create("Judith", 84.3, 9) }

      ' Test each tuple object for equality with every other tuple. 
      For ctr As Integer = 0 To scores.Length - 1
         Dim currentTuple = scores(ctr)
         For ctr2 As Integer = ctr + 1 To scores.Length - 1
            Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}: {2}", currentTuple, scores(ctr2), 
                                                currentTuple.Equals(scores(ctr2)))      
         Next
         Console.WriteLine()
      Next 
   End Sub
