Version.Equals Method (Version)

Returns a value indicating whether the current Version object and a specified Version object represent the same value.

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

public bool Equals (
	Version obj
public final boolean Equals (
	Version obj
public final function Equals (
	obj : Version
) : boolean
Not applicable.



A Version object to compare to the current Version object, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

true if every component of the current Version object matches the corresponding component of the obj parameter; otherwise, false.

This method implements the IEquatable interface, and performs slightly better than the Equals method because it does not have to unbox the obj parameter.
