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

virtual bool Equals(
	Object^ obj
) override


Type: System::Object^

A second object to compare with the current object.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if obj is a TimeZoneInfo object that is equal to the current instance; otherwise, false.

This method converts or casts obj to a TimeZoneInfo object and compares it with the current instance. The test for equality is based on a comparison of values. The current TimeZoneInfo instance and obj are considered to be equal under the following conditions:

  • The run-time type of obj is TimeZoneInfo.

  • The two objects have the same Id property value.

  • The two objects have the same adjustment rules.

If obj is null, this method returns false.

The following example uses the Equals(Object^) method to determine whether the local time zone is Pacific Time or Eastern Time.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
