Tuple(T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6).Equals Method

Returns a value that indicates whether the current Tuple(T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6) object is equal to a specified object.

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

abstract Equals : 
        obj:Object -> bool  
override Equals : 
        obj:Object -> bool


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, T5, T6) object.

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

  • Its six 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 sextuples that contain population data for Los Angeles and New York from 1960 to 2000. The first component of each sextuple identifies the city. The first, third, and fourth sextuples contain data for New York. The first sextuple is a duplicate of the fourth sextuple. The third sextuple identifies the city as "New York City" instead of "New York". As the example shows, only the fourth sextuple is equal to the first sextuple.
