)

Public Function IsEqual(
  item As IStorageItem 
) As Boolean

bool IsEqual(
  IStorageItem^ item

Parameters

item

The IStorageItem object that represents the folder to compare against.

Return value

Type: Boolean [JavaScript] | System.Boolean [.NET] | Platform::Boolean [C++]

Remarks

Use the IsEqual method to determine whether two items represent the same folder.

This method compares the Path property of both items to determine if they are the same. If there is no Path (if the item is a library for example), or if the paths do not match the items are compared using IShellItem::Compare.
