Public propertyValueReturns an uppercase string representation of this NTAccount object. (Overrides IdentityReference.Value.)

Public methodEqualsReturns a value that indicates whether this NTAccount object is equal to a specified object. (Overrides IdentityReference.Equals(Object).)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for the current NTAccount object. The GetHashCode method is suitable for hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table. (Overrides IdentityReference.GetHashCode().)

Public operatorStatic memberInequalityCompares two NTAccount objects to determine whether they are not equal. They are considered not equal if they have different canonical name representations than the one returned by the Value property or if one of the objects is null and the other is not.
