TimeSpan::Equals Method (TimeSpan, TimeSpan)

 

Returns a value that indicates whether two specified instances of TimeSpan are equal.

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

public:
static bool Equals(
	TimeSpan t1,
	TimeSpan t2
)

Parameters

t1
Type: System::TimeSpan

The first time interval to compare.

t2
Type: System::TimeSpan

The second time interval to compare.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if the values of t1 and t2 are equal; otherwise, false.

The following example compares several TimeSpan objects to a reference TimeSpan object using the static Equals method.

// Example of the TimeSpan::Compare( TimeSpan, TimeSpan ) and 
// TimeSpan::Equals( TimeSpan, TimeSpan ) methods.
using namespace System;
const __wchar_t * protoFmt = L"{0,-38}{1}";

// Compare TimeSpan parameters, and display them with the results.
void CompareTimeSpans( TimeSpan Left, TimeSpan Right, String^ RightText )
{
   String^ dataFmt = gcnew String( protoFmt );
   Console::WriteLine();
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, String::Concat( "Right: ", RightText ), Right );
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "TimeSpan::Equals( Left, Right )", TimeSpan::Equals( Left, Right ) );
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "TimeSpan::Compare( Left, Right )", TimeSpan::Compare( Left, Right ) );
}

int main()
{
   TimeSpan Left = TimeSpan(2,0,0);
   Console::WriteLine( "This example of the TimeSpan::Equals( TimeSpan, TimeSpan "
   ") and \nTimeSpan::Compare( TimeSpan, TimeSpan ) "
   "methods generates the \nfollowing output by creating "
   "several different TimeSpan \nobjects and comparing "
   "them with a 2-hour TimeSpan.\n" );
   Console::WriteLine( gcnew String( protoFmt ), "Left: TimeSpan( 2, 0, 0 )", Left );

   // Create objects to compare with a 2-hour TimeSpan.
   CompareTimeSpans( Left, TimeSpan(0,120,0), "TimeSpan( 0, 120, 0 )" );
   CompareTimeSpans( Left, TimeSpan(2,0,1), "TimeSpan( 2, 0, 1 )" );
   CompareTimeSpans( Left, TimeSpan(2,0,-1), "TimeSpan( 2, 0, -1 )" );
   CompareTimeSpans( Left, TimeSpan(72000000000), "TimeSpan( 72000000000 )" );
   CompareTimeSpans( Left, TimeSpan::FromDays( 1.0 / 12. ), "TimeSpan::FromDays( 1 / 12 )" );
}
