public override bool Equals(
	Object obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Object

The object to test.

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgs e, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code creates two Font objects and then tests whether they are equivalent.

public void Equals_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create a Font object.
    Font firstFont = new Font("Arial", 16);

    // Create a second Font object.
    Font secondFont = new Font(new FontFamily("Arial"), 16);

    // Test to see if firstFont is identical to secondFont. 
    bool fontTest = firstFont.Equals(secondFont);

    // Display a message box with the result of the test.
    MessageBox.Show(fontTest.ToString());
}
