Byte.Equals Method (Object)

Returns a value indicating whether this instance is equal to a specified object.

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override bool Equals (
	Object obj
)
public boolean Equals (
	Object obj
)
public override function Equals (
	obj : Object
) : boolean

Parameters

obj

An object to compare with this instance, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

true if obj is an instance of Byte and equals the value of this instance; otherwise, false.

The following code example determines whether the first Byte value is equal to the second Byte value, and whether the first Byte value is equal to the boxed version of the second Byte value.

// This code example demonstrates the System.Byte.Equals(Object) and
// System.Byte.Equals(Byte) methods.

using System;

class Sample 
{
    public static void Main() 
    {
    byte   byteVal1 = 0x7f;
    byte   byteVal2 = 127;
    object objectVal3 = byteVal2;
//
    Console.WriteLine("byteVal1 = {0}, byteVal2 = {1}, objectVal3 = {2}\n",
                       byteVal1, byteVal2, objectVal3);
    Console.WriteLine("byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(byteVal2));
    Console.WriteLine("byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: {0}", byteVal1.Equals(objectVal3));
    }
}

/*
This code example produces the following results:

byteVal1 = 127, byteVal2 = 127, objectVal3 = 127

byteVal1 equals byteVal2?: True
byteVal1 equals objectVal3?: True
