Object.GetHashCode Method

.NET Micro Framework 3.0
Serves as a hash function for a particular type.

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

[MethodImplAttribute]
public virtual int GetHashCode ()

Return Value

A hash code for the current object.

You can use the GetHashCode method to hash algorithms and data structures (such as hash tables).

The GetHashCode method can be overridden by a derived class. Value classes must override this method to provide a hash function that is appropriate for the class and that ensures optimum distribution in the hash table. Classes that might be used as keys in a hash table must also override this method, because objects that are used as keys in a hash table are required to generate their own hash code by using this method.

Available in the .NET Micro Framework versions 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2.
