Compiler Warning (level 3) CS0661

'class' defines operator == or operator != but does not override Object.GetHashCode()

The compiler detected the user-defined equality or inequality operator, but no override for the GetHashCode function. A user-defined equality or inequality operator implies that you also want to override the GetHashCode function.

The following sample generates CS0661:

// CS0661.cs
// compile with: /W:3
class Test   // CS0661
{
   public static bool operator == (object o, Test t)
   {M
      return true;
   }

   public static bool operator != (object o, Test t)
   {
      return true;
   }

   public override bool Equals(object o)
   {
      return true;
   }

   // uncomment the GetHashCode function to resolve
   // public override int GetHashCode()
   // {
   //    return 0;
   // }

   public static void Main()
   {
   }
}
