Equals

Silverlight

Checks for equality of an object to the current object.

retval = object.Equals(objectToCompare)

objectToCompare

object

The object to compare to the calling object.

Type: Boolean

true if the objects are the same object; otherwise, false.

Each managed type (particularly structures) often implements its own definition of Equals, but the base definition is on Object.

Equality is determined by reference equality. In Silverlight JavaScript programming, this applies even if you compare two instances, such as Point objects, that have identical string initialization for their internal values. In other words, if you create two Point instances with X,Y values of (0,0), they will not evaluate as being equal for this implementation of the Equals method.

Some of the object types listed in the Applies To section are abstract types. The Equals method cannot truly be called on those types in JavaScript because there is no way to obtain instances of abstract types in JavaScript programming.
