Decimal.Equals Method (Decimal)

April 12, 2014

Returns a value indicating whether this instance and a specified Decimal object represent the same value.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public bool Equals(
	decimal value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal object to compare to this instance.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if value is equal to this instance; otherwise, false.

Implements

IEquatable<T>.Equals(T)

This method implements the System.IEquatable<T> interface, and performs slightly better than Equals because it does not have to convert the value parameter to an object.

If value has fewer bits (is narrower) than the instance type, some programming languages perform an implicit widening conversion that transforms the value of the parameter into a value with more bits.

For example, suppose the instance type is Int32 and the parameter type is Byte. The Microsoft C# compiler generates instructions to represent the value of the parameter as an Int32 object, then generates a Int32.CompareTo method to compare the Int32 instance and parameter representation.

Consult your programming language's documentation to determine whether its compiler performs implicit widening conversions on numeric types.
