Decimal.Equals Method (Decimal, Decimal)

Returns a value indicating whether two specified instances of Decimal represent the same value.

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

public static bool Equals(
	decimal d1,
	decimal d2
)

Parameters

d1
Type: System.Decimal

The first value to compare.

d2
Type: System.Decimal

The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if d1 and d2 are equal; otherwise, false.

The following code example compares several Decimal values to a reference Decimal value using the static Equals method.

// Example of the decimal.Compare and static decimal.Equals methods. 
using System;

    const string dataFmt = "{0,-45}{1}";

    // Compare decimal parameters, and display them with the results.

            Left );

/*
This example of the decimal.Equals( decimal, decimal ) and
decimal.Compare( decimal, decimal ) methods generates the
following output. It creates several different decimal
values and compares them with the following reference value.

Left: decimal( 123.456 )                     123.456

Right: decimal( 1.2345600E+2 )               123.456
decimal.Equals( Left, Right )                True
decimal.Compare( Left, Right )               0

Right: 123.4561M                             123.4561
decimal.Equals( Left, Right )                False
decimal.Compare( Left, Right )               -1

Right: 123.4559M                             123.4559
decimal.Equals( Left, Right )                False
