Char.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 Char and equals the value of this instance; otherwise, false.

The comparison performed by this method is based on the encoded values of this instance and obj, not necessarily their lexicographical characteristics.

The following code example demonstrates Equals.

using System;

public class EqualsSample {
	public static void Main() {
		char chA = 'A';
		char chB = 'B';

		Console.WriteLine(chA.Equals('A'));		// Output: "True"
		Console.WriteLine('b'.Equals(chB));		// Output: "False"
	}
}

import System.* ;

public class EqualsSample
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Char chA = (Char)'A';
        Char chB = (Char)'B';
      
        Console.WriteLine(chA.Equals((Char)'A')); // Output: "True"
        Console.WriteLine(((Char)'b').Equals(chB)); // Output: "False"
    } //main
} //EqualsSample
