Color.Equals Method (Color, Color)

Tests whether two Color structures are identical.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

'Declaration
Public Shared Function Equals ( _
	color1 As Color, _
	color2 As Color _
) As Boolean

Parameters

color1
Type: System.Windows.Media.Color
The first Color structure to compare.
color2
Type: System.Windows.Media.Color
The second Color structure to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if color1 and color2 are exactly identical; otherwise, false.

Floating-point values can acquire a small degree of error when they are operated upon. The Equals method, the Equality operator, and the Inequality operator do not compensate for this and thus may not return the expected Boolean result.

The AreClose method uses a fuzzy equality algorithm that compensates for this floating-point arithmetic error by returning true for a comparison of two Color structures that are practically identical, but whose values may differ by a minuscule amount.
