HashSet<T>::SetEquals Method

Determines whether a HashSet<T> object and the specified collection contain the same elements.

Namespace:  System.Collections.Generic
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

virtual bool SetEquals(
	IEnumerable<T>^ other
) sealed


Type: System.Collections.Generic::IEnumerable<T>

The collection to compare to the current HashSet<T> object.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if the HashSet<T> object is equal to other; otherwise, false.




other is nullptr.

The SetEquals method ignores duplicate entries and the order of elements in the other parameter.

If the collection represented by other is a HashSet<T> collection with the same equality comparer as the current HashSet<T> object, this method is an O(n) operation. Otherwise, this method is an O(n + m) operation, where n is the number of elements in other and m is Count.

The following example creates two disparate HashSet<T> objects and compares them to each another. Initially, the two sets are not equal, which is demonstrated by using the SetEquals method. The allNumbers HashSet<T> object is then modified, after which the sets are equal.
