The following example compares two DrawingAttributes objects for equality. Because the Color, StylusTip, Height, and Width properties on attributes1 and attributes2 are set to the same values, the "The DrawingAttributes are equal" message appears.

        DrawingAttributes attributes1 = new DrawingAttributes();
        attributes1.Color = Colors.Blue;
        attributes1.StylusTip = StylusTip.Rectangle;
        attributes1.Height = 5;
        attributes1.Width = 5;

        DrawingAttributes attributes2 = new DrawingAttributes();
        attributes2.Color = Colors.Blue;
        attributes2.StylusTip = StylusTip.Rectangle;
        attributes2.Height = 5;
        attributes2.Width = 5;


        if (attributes1 == attributes2)
            MessageBox.Show("The DrawingAttributes are equal");
            MessageBox.Show("The DrawingAttributes are not equal");
