Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4>.Equals Method

Returns a value that indicates whether the current Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4> object is equal to a specified object.

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

public override bool Equals(
	Object obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Object

The object to compare with this instance.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the current instance is equal to the specified object; otherwise, false.

The obj parameter is considered to be equal to the current instance under the following conditions:

  • It is a Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4> object.

  • Its four components are of the same types as the current instance.

  • Its four components are equal to those of the current instance. Equality is determined by the default object equality comparer for each component.

The following example defines an array of Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4> objects that provide data on temperatures at three times during a particular day. The Equals(Object) method is called to compare every Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4> object with every other Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4> object. The output illustrates that the Equals(Object) method returns true only when all four components of the Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4> objects have equal values.
