C# | Boolean.Equals(Object) Method

Boolean.Equals(Object) Method is used to get a value which indicates whether the current instance is equal to a specified object or not.

Syntax: public override bool Equals (object obj);
Here, it takes an object to compare with the current instance.

Return Value: This method returns true true if obj is a Boolean and has the same value as this instance otherwise, false.

code

// C# program to demonstrate the
// Boolean.Equals(Object) Method
using System;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main()
    {
        // Declaring and initializing value1
        bool value1 = true;
  
        // Declaring and initializing value2
        object value2 = 2 / 78;
  
        // using Equals(object) method
        bool status = value1.Equals(value2);
  
        // checking the status
        if (status)
            Console.WriteLine("{0} is equal to {1}",
                                    value1, value2);
        else
            Console.WriteLine("{0} is not equal to {1}",
                                        value1, value2);
    }
}
