Check if two enums are equal or not in C#
  • Last Updated : 28 May, 2019

Enum.Equals(Object) Method is used to check whether the current instance is equal to a specified object or not. This method overrides ValueType.Equals(Object) to define how enumeration members are evaluated for equality.

Syntax:

public override bool Equals (object obj);

Here, obj is an object to compare with the current instance, or null.

Returns: This method returns true if obj is an enumeration value of the same type and with the same underlying value as current instance otherwise, false.

Example:

filter_none

        Colors c1 = Colors.Blue;
        Colors c2 = Colors.Black;
        Colors c3 = Colors.Blue;
  
        // using the method
