The Equality method defines the operation of the equality operator for FrameworkName objects.

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the FrameworkName.Equals(FrameworkName) method instead.

The following example uses the equality operator to determine whether a FrameworkName object that represents the running version of the .NET Framework is equal to a supported version of the .NET Framework. Note that the two versions are not equal because they do not have identical version numbers.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
