WindowsRuntimeBufferExtensions.IsSameData Method

July 28, 2014

For apps that target Windows Phone OS 7.0 and 7.1, do not use any members of this type in your app. If you do, your code will throw a MethodAccessException. This type is security-critical, which restricts it to internal use by the .NET Framework for Windows Phone class library.

Returns a value that indicates whether two buffers (Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer objects) represent the same underlying memory region.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime
Assembly:  System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime (in System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime.dll)

public static bool IsSameData(
	this IBuffer buffer,
	IBuffer otherBuffer


Type: Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer
The first buffer.
Type: Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer
The second buffer.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the memory regions that are represented by the two buffers have the same starting point; otherwise, false.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IBuffer. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter.

Windows Phone OS

Supported in: 8.1, 8.0
