Determines whether two Uri instances do not have the same value.

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

Public Shared Operator <> (
	uri1 As Uri,
	uri2 As Uri
) As Boolean


Type: System.Uri

A Uri instance to compare with uri2.

Type: System.Uri

A Uri instance to compare with uri1.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

A Boolean value that is true if the two Uri instances are not equal; otherwise, false. If either parameter is null, this method returns true.

This overload uses the Equals method to determine whether the two Uri instances are not equivalent. UserInfo and Fragment content is ignored when making this comparison.

This example creates three Uri instances from strings and compares them to determine whether they represent the same value. Address2 and Address3 are not the same because Address3 contains a Query that is not found in Address2. The outcome is written to the console.

' Create some Uris.
Dim address1 As New Uri("http://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search")
Dim address2 As New Uri("http://www.contoso.com/index.htm")
Dim address3 As New Uri("http://www.contoso.com/index.htm?date=today")

' The first two are equal because the fragment is ignored.
If address1 = address2 Then
    Console.WriteLine("{0} is equal to {1}", address1.ToString(), address2.ToString())
End If 
' The second two are not equal.
If address2 <> address3 Then
    Console.WriteLine("{0} is not equal to {1}", address2.ToString(), address3.ToString())
End If
