Point.Equals Method (Point, Point)

Compares two Point structures for equality. Note: Point coordinates are described using Double values. Because the value of a Double can lose precision when operated upon, a comparison between two Double values that are logically equal might fail.

Namespace: System.Windows
Assembly: WindowsBase (in windowsbase.dll)

public static bool Equals (
	Point point1,
	Point point2
public static boolean Equals (
	Point point1, 
	Point point2
public static function Equals (
	point1 : Point, 
	point2 : Point
) : boolean
You cannot use methods in XAML.



The first point to compare.


The second point to compare.

Return Value

true if point1 and point2 contain the same X and Y values; otherwise, false.

The following example shows how to check if two Point structures are equal using the static Equals method.

private Boolean staticEqualsExample()

    Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);
    Point point2 = new Point(15, 40);

    // Check if the two points are equal using the static Equals method.
    // areEqual is false
    Boolean areEqual = Point.Equals(point1, point2);

    return areEqual;
