The following code example demonstrates the CompareTo method.


public void Compare(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, Byte myByte)
{
   int myCompareResult;

   myCompareResult = MemberByte.CompareTo(myByte);

   if (myCompareResult > 0)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} is less than the MemberByte value {1}", myByte.ToString(), MemberByte.ToString()) + "\n";
   }
   else if (myCompareResult < 0)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} is greater than the MemberByte value {1}", myByte.ToString(), MemberByte.ToString()) + "\n";
   }
   else
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} is equal to the MemberByte value {1}", myByte.ToString(), MemberByte.ToString()) + "\n";
   }
