The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  • Creates two Font objects.

  • Tests whether they are equivalent.

  • Displays the result of the test in a message box.

public void Equals_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create two FontFamily objects.
    FontFamily firstFontFamily = new FontFamily("Arial");
    FontFamily secondFontFamily = new FontFamily("Times New Roman");

    // Check to see if the two font families are equivalent.
    bool equalFonts = firstFontFamily.Equals(secondFontFamily);

    // Display the result of the test in a message box.
    MessageBox.Show(equalFonts.ToString());
}
