Core.EqualityConditionalOnAttribute Class (F#)

This attribute is used to indicate a generic container type satisfies the F# equality constraint only if a generic argument also satisfies this constraint. For example, adding this attribute to parameter 'T on a type definition C<'T> means that a type C<X> only supports equality if the type X also supports equality and all other conditions for C<X> to support equality are also met. The type C<'T> can still be used with other type arguments, but a type such as C<(int -> int)> will not support equality because the type (int -> int) is an F# function type and does not support equality.

Namespace/Module Path: Microsoft.FSharp.Core

Assembly: FSharp.Core (in FSharp.Core.dll)

[<AttributeUsage(16384, AllowMultiple = false)>]
type EqualityConditionalOnAttribute =
  new EqualityConditionalOnAttribute : unit -> EqualityConditionalOnAttribute

This attribute will be ignored if it is used on the generic parameters of functions or methods.

You can also use the short form of the name, EqualityConditionalOn.
