Byte.Equals Method (Byte)

Returns a value indicating whether this instance and a specified Byte object represent the same value.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public bool Equals(
	byte obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Byte
A Byte object to compare to this instance.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if obj is equal to this instance; otherwise, false.

Implements

IEquatable<T>.Equals(T)

This method implements the System.IEquatable<T> interface, and performs slightly better than Equals(Object) because it does not have to convert the obj parameter to an object.

The following code example determines whether the first Byte value is equal to the second Byte value, and whether the first Byte value is equal to the boxed version of the second Byte value.


// This code example demonstrates the System.Byte.Equals(Object) and
// System.Byte.Equals(Byte) methods.

using System;

class Example
{
   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      byte byteVal1 = 0x7f;
      byte byteVal2 = 127;
      object objectVal3 = byteVal2;
      //
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("byteVal1 = {0}, byteVal2 = {1}, objectVal3 = {2}\n",
                         byteVal1, byteVal2, objectVal3) + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(byteVal2)) + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(objectVal3)) + "\n";
   }
}

/*
This code example produces the following results:

byteVal1 = 127, byteVal2 = 127, objectVal3 = 127

byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: True
byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: True
