C# | Boolean.CompareTo(Object) Method

Boolean.CompareTo(Object) Method is used to compare the current instance to a specified object and returns an integer which shows their relationship to one another.

Syntax:

public int CompareTo (object obj);

Here, it takes an object to compare to current instance or null.



Return Value: This method returns a signed integer which shows the relative order of the current instance and obj.

  • Less than zero: If this instance is false and obj is true.
  • Zero: If this instance and obj are equal (either both are true or both are false).
  • Greater than zero: If this instance is true and obj is false or null.

Exception: It throws ArgumentException if obj is not an Boolean.
