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

Public Function Equals ( _
	value As Rect _
) As Boolean


Type: System.Windows.Rect
The rectangle to compare to the current rectangle.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the specified Rect has the same x,y,width,height property values as the current Rect; otherwise, false.

In this comparison, two instances that have property values all of Double.NaN are considered equal.


A rectangle's position and dimensions are described by Double values. Because Double values can lose precision when operated upon, a comparison between two values that are logically equal might fail.
