C# | Check if HashSet and the specified collection contain the same elements

A HashSet is an unordered collection of the unique elements. It comes under System.Collections.Generic namespace. It is used in a situation where we want to prevent duplicates from being inserted in the collection. As far as performance is concerned, it is better in comparison to the list. HashSet.SetEquals(IEnumerable) Method is used to check if a HashSet and the specified collection contain the same elements or not.

Syntax:

mySet1.SetEquals(mySet2);

Here, mySet1 and mySet2 are HashSets objects.



Return Type: This method return True if the mySet1 is equal to mySet2 else returns False.

Exception: This method will give ArgumentNullException if the HashSet is null.

Below given are some examples to understand the implementation in a better way:

Example 1:

filter_none

        mySet1.Add("GeeksforGeeks");
        mySet1.Add("GeeksClasses");
        mySet1.Add("GeeksQuiz");
  
        // Creating a HashSet of strings
        HashSet<string> mySet2 = new HashSet<string>();
  
        // Inserting elements in HashSet
        mySet2.Add("Geeks");
        mySet2.Add("GeeksforGeeks");
        mySet2.Add("GeeksClasses");
        mySet2.Add("GeeksQuiz");
  
        // Check if both HashSets contains same elements
        Console.WriteLine(mySet1.SetEquals(mySet2));
    }
