Compares this instance to a specified object and returns an indication of their relative values.
[Visual Basic] Public Overridable Function CompareTo( _ ByVal obj As Object _ ) As Integer [C#] public virtual int CompareTo( object obj ); [C++] public: virtual int CompareTo( Object* obj ); [JScript] public function CompareTo( obj : Object ) : int;
- An object to compare to this instance, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
A signed integer that indicates the relative order of this instance and obj.
|Less than zero||This instance is false and obj is true.|
|Zero||This instance and obj are equal (either both are true or both are false).|
|Greater than zero||This instance is true and obj is false.
obj is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
obj must be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or an instance of Boolean; otherwise, an exception is thrown.
This method is implemented to support the IComparable interface.
