The following code example demonstrates the CompareTo method.


Public Sub Compare(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock, ByVal myByte As [Byte])
   Dim myCompareResult As Integer

   myCompareResult = MemberByte.CompareTo(myByte)

   If myCompareResult > 0 Then
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} is less than the MemberByte value {1}", myByte.ToString(), MemberByte.ToString()) & vbCrLf
   Else
      If myCompareResult < 0 Then
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} is greater than the MemberByte value {1}", myByte.ToString(), MemberByte.ToString()) & vbCrLf
      Else
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0} is equal to the MemberByte value {1}", myByte.ToString(), MemberByte.ToString()) & vbCrLf
      End If
