Point.Equals Method (Object)

Determines whether the specified Object is a Point and whether it contains the same coordinates as this Point.

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

public override bool Equals(
	Object o
)

Parameters

o
Type: System.Object

The Object to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if o is a Point and contains the same X and Y values as this Point; 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 non-static Equals method.

private Boolean nonStaticEqualsExample()
{

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

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

    return areEqual;

}
