Uri::Equality Operator

Determines whether two Uri instances have the same value.

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

static bool operator ==(
	Uri^ uri1, 
	Uri^ uri2


Type: System::Uri

A Uri instance to compare with uri2.

Type: System::Uri

A Uri instance to compare with uri1.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean
A Boolean value that is true if the Uri instances are equivalent; otherwise, false.

This overload uses the Equals method to determine whether the two Uri instances are equivalent. UserInfo and Fragment content is ignored when making this comparison.

This example creates three Uri instances from strings and compares them to determine whether they represent the same value. Address1 and Address2 are the same because the Fragment portion is ignored for this comparison. The outcome is written to the console.

// Create some Uris.
Uri^ address1 = gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search" );
Uri^ address2 = gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com/index.htm" );
Uri^ address3 = gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com/index.htm?date=today" );

// The first two are equal because the fragment is ignored. 
if ( address1 == address2 )
   Console::WriteLine( "{0} is equal to {1}", address1, address2 );

// The second two are not equal. 
if ( address2 != address3 )
   Console::WriteLine( "{0} is not equal to {1}", address2, address3 );
