ConsoleKeyInfo.Equals Method (ConsoleKeyInfo)

Gets a value indicating whether the specified ConsoleKeyInfo object is equal to the current ConsoleKeyInfo object.

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

public bool Equals(
	ConsoleKeyInfo obj


Type: System.ConsoleKeyInfo
An object to compare to the current ConsoleKeyInfo object.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if obj is equal to the current ConsoleKeyInfo object; otherwise, false.

Two ConsoleKeyInfo objects are equal if their corresponding KeyChar, Key, and Modifiers properties are equal.

The Equals method performs slightly better than the ConsoleKeyInfo.Equals(Object) method because it does not have to convert obj to an object.
