StringComparer.Equals Method (String, String)

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether two strings are equal.

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

public abstract bool Equals(
	string x,
	string y


Type: System.String
A string to compare to y.
Type: System.String
A string to compare to x.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if x and y refer to the same object, or x and y are equal; otherwise, false.


IEqualityComparer<T>.Equals(T, T)

The Equals method is more efficient than the Equals method because the x and y parameters do not have to be unboxed to perform the comparison.
