Int16.Equals Method in C# with Examples

Int16.Equals() Method is used to get a value which indicates whether the current instance is equal to a specified object or Int16. There are 2 methods in the overload list of this method which are as follows:

  • Equals(Int16) Method
  • Equals(Object) Method

Int16.Equals(Int16)

This method is used to return a value indicating whether the current instance is equal to a specified Int16 value or not.

Syntax: public bool Equals (short obj);
Here, it takes a Int16 value to compare to this instance.

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

Below programs illustrate the use of Int16.Equals(Int16) Method:

using System;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main()
    {
        // Declaring and initializing value1
        short value1 = 15;
  
        // Declaring and initializing value2
        short value2 = 17;
  
        // compare both Int16 value
        // using Equals(Int16) 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);
    }
}

    }
}

Output:

5 is equal to 5
5 is not equal to 4
10 is not equal to 20
7 is equal to 7

Int16.Equals(Object) Method

This method is used to returns a value indicating 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 this instance.

Return Value: This method returns true if obj is an instance of Int16 and equals the value of this instance otherwise, false.

Below programs illustrate the use of the above-discussed method:

        object value2 = 37;
  
        // using Equals(object) method

                                    value1, value2);
        else
            Console.WriteLine("{0} is not equal to {1}",
                                        value1, value2);
