Tuple<T1, T2, T3>.Equals Method

Returns a value that indicates whether the current Tuple<T1, T2, T3> object is equal to a specified object.

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

public override bool Equals(
	Object obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Object
The object to compare with this instance.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the current instance is equal to the specified object; otherwise, false.

The obj parameter is considered to be equal to the current instance under the following conditions:

  • It is a Tuple<T1, T2, T3> object.

  • Its three components are of the same types as the current instance.

  • Its three components have the same values as those of the current instance.

The following example calls the Tuple<T1, T2, T3>.Equals(Object) method to determine whether any of the objects in an array of Tuple<T1, T2, T3> objects are equal to one another. The output reflects the fact that the Equals(Object) method returns true when comparing Tuple<T1, T2, T3> objects whose components have equal values.
