Color.Equals Method (Object)

Tests whether the specified object is a Color structure and is equivalent to the current color.

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

public override bool Equals(
	Object o
)

Parameters

o
Type: System.Object
The object to compare to the current Color structure.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the specified object is a Color structure and is identical to the current Color structure; otherwise, false.

Floating-point values can acquire a small degree of error when they are operated upon. The Equals method, the Equality operator, and the Inequality operator do not compensate for this and thus may not return the expected Boolean result.

The AreClose method uses a fuzzy equality algorithm that compensates for this floating-point arithmetic error by returning true for a comparison of two Color structures that are practically identical, but whose values may differ by a minuscule amount.
