DateTimeOffset::Equals Method (DateTimeOffset, DateTimeOffset)


Determines whether two specified DateTimeOffset objects represent the same point in time.

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

static bool Equals(
	DateTimeOffset first,
	DateTimeOffset second


Type: System::DateTimeOffset

The first object to compare.

Type: System::DateTimeOffset

The second object to compare.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if the two DateTimeOffset objects have the same UtcDateTime value; otherwise, false.

Before it performs the comparison, this method converts both DateTimeOffset objects to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The method is equivalent to the following:

In other words, the Equals(DateTimeOffset, DateTimeOffset) method determines whether the two DateTimeOffset objects represent a single point in time. It directly compares neither dates and times nor offsets. To determine whether two DateTimeOffset objects represent the same time and have the same offset value, use the EqualsExact method.

The following example illustrates calls to the Equals(DateTimeOffset, DateTimeOffset) method to test various pairs of DateTimeOffset objects for equality.
