DependencyObject.GetHashCode Method ()

 

Gets a hash code for this DependencyObject.

Namespace:   System.Windows
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

override GetHashCode : unit -> int

Return Value

Type: System.Int32

A signed 32-bit integer hash code.

Notes to Inheritors:

DependencyObject overrides and then seals two Object methods: Equals and GetHashCode. The overrides call the Object implementations, resulting in an object equality behavior. The purpose of these deliberate overrides is to prevent derived classes from trying to define a value equality for a DependencyObject. Value equalities for DependencyObject will never be accurate because of the innate property value-changing capabilities of a DependencyObject and its dependency properties. This includes fundamental WPF features such as data binding and the WPF property system.
