Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, TRest>.Equals Method

July 28, 2014

Returns a value that indicates whether the current Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, TRest> object is equal to a specified object.

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

public override bool Equals(
	Object obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Object
The object to compare with this instance.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the current instance is equal to the specified object; otherwise, false.

The obj parameter is considered to be equal to the current instance if it meets all the following conditions:

  • It is a Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, TRest> object.

  • It has the same total number of components that are of the same types as the current instance.

  • Its components (including its nested components) have the same values as those of the current instance.

The following example defines five Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, TRest> objects that contain prime numbers. It then compares the first object with each of the remaining objects. As the output shows, only the first and the last Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, TRest> objects are equal, because they have an identical number of components with identical values.
