Char.Equals Method (Object)

Returns a value indicating whether this instance is equal to a specified object.

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

public override bool Equals(
	Object obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Object
An object to compare with this instance or null.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if obj is an instance of Char and equals the value of this instance; otherwise, false.

The comparison performed by this method is based on the encoded values of this instance and obj, not necessarily their lexicographical characteristics.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      char chA = 'A';
      char chB = 'B';

      outputBlock.Text += chA.Equals('A') + "\n";		// Output: "True"
      outputBlock.Text += 'b'.Equals(chB) + "\n";		// Output: "False"
   }
}
