Compares two DateTimeOffset objects and indicates whether the first is earlier than the second, equal to the second, or later than the second.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public static function Compare( first : DateTimeOffset, second : DateTimeOffset ) : int
Return ValueType: System.Int32
A signed integer that indicates whether the value of the first parameter is earlier than, later than, or the same time as the value of the second parameter, as the following table shows.
Less than zero
first is earlier than second.
first is equal to second.
Greater than zero
first is later than second.
In performing the comparison, the method converts both the first and the second parameters to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) before it performs the comparison. The method is equivalent to the following:
In other words, the method determines whether two DateTimeOffset objects represent a single point in time. It directly compares neither dates and times nor offsets.
