ComparisonSettings Enumeration

Describes the object comparison modes that can be used with CompareTo. Note that these values may be combined.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

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

[FlagsAttribute]
public enum ComparisonSettings

Member nameDescription
IncludeAllA mode that compares all elements of the compared objects. Value: 0.
IgnoreQualifiersA mode that compares the objects, ignoring qualifiers. Value: 1.
IgnoreObjectSourceA mode that ignores the source of the objects, namely the server and the namespace they came from, in comparison to other objects. Value: 2.
IgnoreDefaultValuesA mode that ignores the default values of properties. This value is only meaningful when comparing classes. Value: 4.
IgnoreClassA mode that assumes that the objects being compared are instances of the same class. Consequently, this value causes comparison of instance-related information only. Use this flag to optimize performance. If the objects are not of the same class, the results are undefined. Value: 8.
IgnoreCaseA mode that compares string values in a case-insensitive manner. This applies to strings and to qualifier values. Property and qualifier names are always compared in a case-insensitive manner whether this flag is specified or not. Value: 16.
IgnoreFlavorA mode that ignores qualifier flavors. This flag still takes qualifier values into account, but ignores flavor distinctions such as propagation rules and override restrictions. Value: 32.
