String::Equals Method (String^)

 

Determines whether this instance and another specified String object have the same value.

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

public:
virtual bool Equals(
	String^ value
) sealed

Parameters

value
Type: System::String^

The string to compare to this instance.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if the value of the value parameter is the same as the value of this instance; otherwise, false. If value is null, the method returns false.

This method performs an ordinal (case-sensitive and culture-insensitive) comparison.

The following example demonstrates the Equals method.It compares the title-cased word "File" with an equivalent word, its lowercase equivalent, its uppercase equivalent, and a word that contains LATIN SMALL LETTER DOTLESS I (U+0131) instead of LATIN SMALL LETTER I (U+0069). Because the Equals(String^) method performs an ordinal comparison, only the comparison with an identical word returns true.
