Point::Equals Method (Point, Point)

Compares two Point structures for equality.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

public:
static bool Equals(
	Point point1, 
	Point point2
)

Parameters

point1
Type: System.Windows::Point

The first point to compare.

point2
Type: System.Windows::Point

The second point to compare.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if point1 and point2 contain the same X and Y values; otherwise, false.

Point coordinates are described using Double values. Because the value of a Double can lose precision when operated upon, a comparison between two Point values that are logically equal might fail.

The following example shows how to check if two Point structures are equal using the static Equals method.

private Boolean staticEqualsExample()
{

    Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);
    Point point2 = new Point(15, 40);

    // Check if the two points are equal using the static Equals method. 
    // areEqual is false
    Boolean areEqual = Point.Equals(point1, point2);

    return areEqual;

}
