TimeZoneInfo.Equals Method (Object)

.NET Framework (current version)
 

Determines whether the current TimeZoneInfo object and another object are equal.

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

Public Overrides Function Equals (
	obj As Object
) As Boolean

Parameters

obj
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.

Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim thisTimeZone As TimeZoneInfo
      Dim obj1, obj2 As Object

      thisTimeZone = TimeZoneInfo.Local
      obj1 = TimeZoneInfo.FindSystemTimeZoneById("Pacific Standard Time")
      obj2 = TimeZoneInfo.FindSystemTimeZoneById("Eastern Standard Time")
      Console.WriteLine(thisTimeZone.Equals(obj1))
      Console.WriteLine(thisTimeZone.Equals(obj2))
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'      True
'      False
