StringComparer::Equals Method (Object, Object)

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether two objects are equal.

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

public:
virtual bool Equals(
	Object^ x, 
	Object^ y
) sealed

Parameters

x
Type: System::Object

An object to compare to y.

y
Type: System::Object

An object to compare to x.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if x and y refer to the same object, or x and y are both the same type of object and those objects are equal; otherwise, false.

Implements

IEqualityComparer::Equals(Object, Object)

The Equals method is more efficient than the Equals method because the x and y parameters do not have to be unboxed to perform the comparison.
