equivalentCodeEntityM:System.Decimal.Compare(System.Decimal,System.Decimal)

Returns a value that indicates whether two Decimal objects have different values.

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

true if d1 and d2 are not equal; otherwise, false.

The Inequality method defines the operation of the inequality 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: True
//       16354.07 = 16354.07: False

If the language you're using doesn't support custom operators, you can test for inequality by using one of the following techniques:

  • Calling the Compare method, which indicates the relationship between two Decimal values.

  • Calling the Equals method and reversing its value.
