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)

static let inline (=)
        left:XName * 
        right:XName  : bool

Parameters

left
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XName

The first XName to compare.

right
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.

The following example shows some comparisons between XName objects and strings.
