Breaking Changes and Updates

(3.1.0 to 3.2.0)

  • In the previous version, the attributes and equality comparer must be exposed, which means that the output build must be a library; was removed <IncludeBuildOutput>false</IncludeBuildOutput>. In the new update, the attributes and equalitycomparers are also included in the generated code making it possible to add <IncludeBuildOutput>false</IncludeBuildOutput> in the package settings, making the package purely as an analyzer.

Usage

The source generator can be used by marking the target class/record/struct with [Equatable] Attribute. The property members can also be marked with specific attributes to dictate the equality comparison method to be used. The sample below shows an EmployeeInfo class marked with the specific Attributes.

using EMDD.KtEquatable.Core.Attributes;
 
[Equatable]
partial class EmployeeInfo
{
    public string? Name { get; set; }
    
    [IgnoreEquality]
    public int Id { get; set; }

    [FloatingPointEquality(4)]
    public double Salary { get; set; }

    [EnumerableEquality(EnumerableOrderType.Unordered)]
    public Dictionary<string, int>? BankAccountDetails { get; set; }

    [EnumerableEquality(EnumerableOrderType.Ordered)]
    public List<DateTime>? TimeIn { get; set; }

    [ReferenceEquality]
    public EmployeeInfo? Superior { get; set; }

    [ReferenceEquality]
    public string? SocialSecurity { get; set; }
}

class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        const string SS = "BBB";
        
        EmployeeInfo boss1 = new EmployeeInfo() { Name = "Bob", Id = 1 };
        EmployeeInfo boss2 = new EmployeeInfo() { Name = "Bob", Id = 2 };
        EmployeeInfo employee1 = new EmployeeInfo() {
            Name = "Chipotle",
            Id = 3,
            Salary = 10000.0003,
            BankAccountDetails = new Dictionary<string, int> { { "Wells", 123 }, { "JP", 234 }, { "BoA", 345 } },
            Superior = boss1,
            TimeIn= new List<DateTime> { new DateTime (2012,3,4), new DateTime(2012, 3, 5), new DateTime(2012, 3, 6) },
            SocialSecurity="AAA"
        };
        EmployeeInfo employee2 = new EmployeeInfo() {
            Name = "Chipotle",
            Id = 3,
            Salary = 10000.0003,
            BankAccountDetails = new Dictionary<string, int> { { "Wells", 123 }, { "JP", 234 }, { "BoA", 345 } },
            Superior = boss2,
            TimeIn= new List<DateTime> { new DateTime (2012,3,4), new DateTime(2012, 3, 5), new DateTime(2012, 3, 6)},
            SocialSecurity= SS
        };
        EmployeeInfo employee3 = new EmployeeInfo() {
            Name = "Chipotle",
            Id = 3,
            Salary = 10000.0004,
            BankAccountDetails = new Dictionary<string, int> { { "Wells", 123 }, { "JP", 234 }, { "BoA", 345 } },
            Superior = boss2,
            TimeIn= new List<DateTime> { new DateTime (2012,3,4), new DateTime(2012, 3, 5), new DateTime(2012, 3, 6) },
            SocialSecurity = SS
        };
        Console.WriteLine(employee1 != employee2);
        Console.WriteLine(employee2 == employee3);
    }
}

note: the class marked with [Equatable] including its parent/containing classes must be marked as partial

Supported Attributes

Class/Record/Struct Declaration Attributes

Equatable

The code generator will only recognize class, record or struct marked with [Equatable].

Property Attributes

Default (No Attribute)

A property that is not marked by any Attributes mentioned below will produce a generated code that uses EqualityComparer<T>.Default when checking Equality and calculating Hashcode.

IgnoreEquality

Properties marked with [IgnoreEquality] will not be included in the equality checking and Hashcode calculation

[IgnoreEquality] 
public string Name { get; set; }
FloatingPointEquality
[FloatingPointEquality(10)]
public double Salary { get; set; } // Must be double

A property marked with [FloatingPointEquality] will be used in the comparison of equality such that the difference between the compared value should not be less than the precision. the property will be compared using the build-in EqualityComparer:

FloatingPointEqualityComparer
ReferenceEquality

A property marked with [ReferenceEquality] will use Reference equality checking only

[ReferenceEquality]
public Employee Superior { get; set; }
EnumerableEquality

Comparison of Collections/IEnumerables with specific requirements such as when the order is not or is required or if the collection can have repeated elements.

[Equatable]
partial class Book 
{
    [EnumerableEquality(EnumerableOrderType.Ordered)]
    public DateTime[] Borrower { get; set; } 

    [EnumerableEquality(EnumerableOrderType.Unordered)]
    public string[] BookTitle { get; set; } 

    [EnumerableEquality(EnumerableOrderType.Set)]
    public HashSet<string> Borrowers { get; set; }
}

ReferenceEquality and FloatingPointEquality can also be mixed with EnumerableEquality. Say if you want to compare an List of unordered double property with 3 decimal point precisions:

[Equatable]
partial class Mechanic
{
    [EnumerableEquality(EnumerableOrderType.Ordered)]
    [FLoatingPointEquality(3)]
    public System.List<double> Payments { get; set; } 
}

The Payments property will be compared using new UnorderedEqualityComparer(new FloatingPointEqualityComparer(3))
