StringComparer.Equals Method (Object, Object)

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether two objects are equal.

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

public bool Equals(
	Object x,
	Object y
)

Parameters

x
Type: System.Object

An object to compare to y.

y
Type: System.Object

An object to compare to x.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if x and y refer to the same object, or x and y are both the same type of object and those objects are equal, or both x and y are null; otherwise, false.

Implements

IEqualityComparer.Equals(Object, Object)

Because the runtime does not have to unbox x or y if they are value types or attempt to downcast x or y to strings if they are reference types, the Equals(String, String) method may be slightly more efficient than the Equals(Object, Object) method.
