XNamespace.Equality Operator (XNamespace, XNamespace)


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

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

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


Type: System.Xml.Linq.XNamespace

The first XNamespace to compare.

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XNamespace

The second XNamespace to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

A Boolean that indicates whether left and right are equal.

The operator overloads == and != are provided to enable comparisons between XNamespace and string (for example, element.Name.Namespace == "http://www.adventure-works.com"). The predefined reference equality operators in C# require one operand to be convertible to the type of the other through reference conversions only, and do not consider the implicit conversion from string to XNamespace.

The following example shows the comparison of an XNamespace and a string.

                XNamespace aw = "http://www.adventure-works.com";
Console.WriteLine(aw == "http://www.adventure-works.com");
