TimeSpan.Equals Method (TimeSpan, TimeSpan)

 

Returns a value that indicates whether two specified instances of TimeSpan are equal.

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

public static bool Equals(
	TimeSpan t1,
	TimeSpan t2
)

Parameters

t1
Type: System.TimeSpan

The first time interval to compare.

t2
Type: System.TimeSpan

The second time interval to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the values of t1 and t2 are equal; otherwise, false.

The following example compares several TimeSpan objects to a reference TimeSpan object using the static Equals method.

// Example of the TimeSpan.Compare( TimeSpan, TimeSpan ) and 
// TimeSpan.Equals( TimeSpan, TimeSpan ) methods.
using System;

            "TimeSpan( 2, 0, 1 )" );
        CompareTimeSpans( Left, new TimeSpan( 2, 0, -1 ), 
            "TimeSpan( 2, 0, -1 )");

            "TimeSpan.FromDays( 1 / 12 )" );
    }
