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


Type: System.Object
An object to compare with this instance.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if obj is an instance of Int32 and equals the value of this instance; otherwise, false.

The following code example illustrates the use of Equals in the context of Int32, comparing two int values and returning true if they represent the same number, or false if they do not.

         Int32 myVariable1 = 60;
         Int32 myVariable2 = 60;

         // Get and display the declaring type.
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\nType of 'myVariable1' is '{0}' and" +
              " value is :{1}", myVariable1.GetType(), myVariable1) + "\n";
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Type of 'myVariable2' is '{0}' and" +
              " value is :{1}", myVariable2.GetType(), myVariable2) + "\n";

         // Compare 'myVariable1' instance with 'myVariable2' Object.
         if (myVariable1.Equals(myVariable2))
            outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\nStructures 'myVariable1' and " +
                  "'myVariable2' are equal") + "\n";
            outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\nStructures 'myVariable1' and " +
                  "'myVariable2' are not equal") + "\n";
