Byte.Equals Method (Byte)

Returns a value indicating whether this instance and a specified Byte object represent the same value.

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

'Declaration
Public Function Equals ( _
	obj As Byte _
) As Boolean

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Byte

An object to compare to this instance.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if obj is equal to this instance; otherwise, false.

Implements

IEquatable(Of T).Equals(T)

This method implements the System.IEquatable(Of T) interface, and performs slightly better than Equals(Object) because it does not have to convert the obj parameter to an object.

The following code example determines whether the first Byte value is equal to the second Byte value, and whether the first Byte value is equal to the boxed version of the second Byte value.

' This code example demonstrates the System.Byte.Equals(Object) and 
' System.Byte.Equals(Byte) methods. 

Imports System

Class Sample
    Public Shared Sub Main() 
        Dim byteVal1 As Byte = &H7F
        Dim byteVal2 As Byte = 127
        Dim objectVal3 As Object = byteVal2
        '
        Console.WriteLine("byteVal1 = {0}, byteVal2 = {1}, objectVal3 = {2}" & vbCrLf, _
                          byteVal1, byteVal2, objectVal3)
        Console.WriteLine("byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(byteVal2))
        Console.WriteLine("byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(objectVal3))
    End Sub 'Main
End Class 'Sample


'This code example produces the following results: 

'byteVal1 = 127, byteVal2 = 127, objectVal3 = 127 

'byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: True 
'byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: True
