DateTime.CompareTo Method (DateTime)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
A DateTime object to compare.
Return ValueA signed number indicating the relative values of this instance and the value parameter.
Less than zero
This instance is earlier than value.
This instance is the same as value.
Greater than zero
This instance is later than value.
This method implements the System.IComparable interface and performs slightly better than the DateTime.CompareTo(Object) method overload because it does not have to convert the value parameter to an object.
Before comparing DateTime objects, make sure that the objects represent times in the same time zone. You can do this by comparing the values of their Kind properties.
