Decimal.Equals Method (Object)

 

Returns a value indicating whether this instance and a specified Object represent the same type and value.

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

override Equals : 
        value:Object -> bool

Parameters

value
Type: System.Object

The object to compare with this instance.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if value is a Decimal and equal to this instance; otherwise, false.

Notes to Callers:

Compiler overload resolution may account for an apparent difference in the behavior of the two Equals method overloads. If an implicit conversion between the obj argument and a Decimal is defined and the argument is not typed as an Object, compilers may perform an implicit conversion and call the Equals(Decimal) method. Otherwise, they call the Equals(Object) method, which always returns false if its obj argument is not a Decimal value. The following example illustrates the difference in behavior between the two method overloads. In the case of all primitive integral types, including both signed and unsigned types, the first comparison returns true because the compiler automatically performs a widening conversion and calls the Equals(Decimal) method, whereas the second comparison returns false because the compiler calls the Equals(Object) method.
