ICYMI C# 8 New Features: Simplify If Statements with Property Pattern Matching

This is part 3 in a series of articles.

In the first part of this series we looked at switch expressions.

When making use of switch expressions, C## 8 also introduced the concept of property pattern matching. This enables you to match on one or more items of an object and helps to simplify multiple **if…else if **statements into a more concise form.

For example, suppose we had a CustomerOrder:

Now say we wanted to calculate a delivery cost based on what State the order is being delivered to. If the customer is a VIP member then the delivery fee may be waived depending on what the **State **is. We could write this using if…else if:

The preceding code will get bigger and harder to read the more states we add.

An alternative could be to use a switch statement to try and simplify this:

In the preceding code there is still a bit of “ceremony” with all the case blocks.

We could instead use a switch expression that makes use of property pattern matching:


Notice how the preceding code is a lot more succinct, and it’s easy to see all the cases and combinations.

What if for some States, the VIP status was not relevant for calculating delivery cost?

Suppose that the state “QE” always had a high delivery cost that never got reduced even for VIPs:

In the preceding code, if the State is “QE” then the delivery cost will be 99.99. Also notice the use of the discard _ that says “for all other combinations not listed above set the delivery cost to 5”.

Let's Give Some Unit Testing Love to C# 8 and C# 9 Features

According to StackOverflow, C## is one of the most-loved programming languages. And I completely understand that—it is powerful, easy to learn and consistently improving and developing. It is a living language. :)

The last couple of years, there were new features added to the languages, and the new versions keep coming up—C## 7, C## 8, C## 9.

As you know, we at Progress Telerik are proud that our products are always in sync with the latest things in the .NET world, and C## 9 and JustMock are no exception.

ICYMI C# 8 New Features: Simplify Array Access and Range Code

This is part 5 in a series of articles.

One of the new features that C## 8 introduced was the ability to work more simply with arrays and items within arrays.

Take the following code that uses various ways to manipulate an array of strings:


It’s pretty easy to get the first element in an array [0] and the last item [letters.Length - 1] but when we get to getting ranges (like the middle 2 letters) or 2 from the end things get a little more complicated.

C## 8 introduced a new shorter syntax for dealing with indices and ranges. The preceding code could be re-rewritten in C## 8 as follows:

There’s a few different things going on in the C#8 version.

First of all, C## 8 gives us the new index from end operator ^. This essentially gives us an element by starting at the end and counting back. One thing to note here is that the index ^0 is not the last element, rather the length of the array (remember in C## arrays are zero-based). The last element is actually at ^1. If you try and access an element using [^0] you’ll get an IndexOutOfRangeException just as you would if you wrote [letters.length].

In additional to the index from end operator, C## 8 also introduced the **range operator … – **this allows you to specify a range of elements. For example in the code, the range [2…4] gives us the middle 2 letters C & D – or more specifically, it gives us the range of elements starting at 2 and ending at 4. Why 4 though? When using the range operator, the first index is _inclusive _but the last index is exclusive. So [2…4] really means “2 to 3 inclusive”.

You can also use open ended ranges where you omit the start or end range, for example string[] lastThreeLetters = letters[^3…];

To make the new indexing feature work, there is a new struct called Index. And to make ranges work there is a new struct called Range.

For example, you can create and pass Range instances around:

Notice in this code we are using ^0 (and get no exception) to specify the end because the end of a range is exclusive.

As well as arrays you can also use these techniques with other types which you can read more about in the Microsoft documentation e.g. the MS docs state: “For example, the following .NET types support both indices and ranges: StringSpan, and ReadOnlySpan. The List supports indices but doesn’t support ranges.” And also from the docs: “Any type that provides an indexer with an Index or Range parameter explicitly supports indices or ranges respectively. An indexer that takes a single Range parameter may return a different sequence type, such as System.Span.”…and… “A type is countable if it has a property named Length or Count with an accessible getter and a return type of int. A countable type that doesn’t explicitly support indices or ranges may provide an implicit support for them. For more information, see the Implicit Index support and Implicit Range support sections of the feature proposal note. Ranges using implicit range support return the same sequence type as the source sequence.”

How to Run C/C++ in Sublime Text?

C and C++ are the most powerful programming language in the world. Most of the super fast and complex libraries and algorithms are written in C or C++. Most powerful Kernel programs are also written in C. So, there is no way to skip it.

In programming competitions, most programmers prefer to write code in C or C++. Tourist is considered the worlds top programming contestant of all ages who write code in C++.

During programming competitions, programmers prefer to use a lightweight editor to focus on coding and algorithm designing. VimSublime Text, and Notepad++ are the most common editors for us. Apart from the competition, many software developers and professionals love to use Sublime Text just because of its flexibility.

I have discussed the steps we need to complete in this blog post before running a C/C++ code in Sublime Text. We will take the inputs from an input file and print outputs to an output file without using freopen file related functions in C/C++.
