XName.Equality Operator

Returns a value indicating whether two instances of XName are equal.

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

public static bool operator ==(
	XName left,
	XName right


Type: System.Xml.Linq.XName
The first XName to compare.
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XName
The second XName to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if left and right are equal; otherwise false.

The operator overloads == and != are included to enable comparisons between XName and a string, such as element.Name == "SomeElementName". The predefined reference equality operators in C# require one operand to be convertible to the type of the other through reference conversions only. These operators do not consider the implicit conversion from string to XName.
