Point.Equality Operator

Compares two Point structures for equality.

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

Public Shared Operator = ( _
	point1 As Point, _
	point2 As Point _
) As Boolean


Type: System.Windows.Point

The first Point structure to compare.

Type: System.Windows.Point

The second Point structure to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if both the X and Y coordinates of point1 and point2 are equal; otherwise, false.

A point's coordinates are described using Double values. Because the value of Double can lose precision when arithmetic operations are performed on them, 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 overloaded (==) operator.

		Private Function overloadedEqualityOperatorExample() As Boolean
			Dim point1 As New Point(10, 5)
			Dim point2 As New Point(15, 40)

			' Check if two Points are equal using the overloaded equality operator.
			' areEqual is False.
			Dim areEqual As Boolean = (point1 = point2)

			Return areEqual

		End Function
