Equals Method

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Determines whether the specified object and the current delegate are of the same type and share the same targets, methods, and invocation list.

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

public override bool Equals(
	Object obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System..::..Object
The object to compare with the current delegate.

Return Value

Type: System..::..Boolean
true if obj and the current delegate have the same targets, methods, and invocation list; otherwise, false.

If the two delegates are not of the same type, they are not considered equal.

The methods and targets are compared for equality as follows:

  • If the two methods being compared are both static and are the same method on the same class, the methods are considered equal and the targets are also considered equal.

  • If the two methods being compared are instance methods and are the same method on the same object, the methods are considered equal and the targets are also considered equal.

  • Otherwise, the methods are not considered to be equal and the targets are also not considered to be equal.

Two invocation lists are considered identical only if they have the same order and the corresponding elements from the two lists represent the same method and target.
