FrameworkName.Inequality Operator (FrameworkName, FrameworkName)

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Returns a value that indicates whether two FrameworkName objects represent different .NET Framework versions.

Namespace:   System.Runtime.Versioning
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public static bool operator !=(
	FrameworkName left,
	FrameworkName right


Type: System.Runtime.Versioning.FrameworkName

The first object to compare.

Type: System.Runtime.Versioning.FrameworkName

The second object to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the left and right parameters represent different .NET Framework versions; otherwise, false.

The Inequality method defines the operation of the inequality operator for FrameworkName objects.

Languages that do not support custom operators can test for inequality by calling the FrameworkName.Equals(FrameworkName) method and reversing its value.

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.
