equivalentCodeEntityM:System.Decimal.Equals(System.Object)

Returns a value that indicates whether two Decimal values are equal.

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

public static bool operator ==(
	decimal d1,
	decimal d2
)

Parameters

d1
Type: System.Decimal

The first value to compare.

d2
Type: System.Decimal

The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

The Equality method defines the operation of the equality operator for Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Decimal number1 = 16354.0695m;
      Decimal number2 = 16354.0699m;
      Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}: {2}", number1, 
                        number2, number1 == number2);

      number1 = Decimal.Round(number1, 2);
      number2 = Decimal.Round(number2, 2);
      Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}: {2}", number1, 
                        number2, number1 == number2);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       16354.0695 = 16354.0699: False
//       16354.07 = 16354.07: True

If the language you're using doesn't support custom operators, call the Equals method instead.
