Now that I have been coding X# more than researching stuff for Cologne in April, I find myself coding X# WPF/XAML apps in the MVVM pattern, with increasing use of the single dot, and in many places where previously it was a 'MUST' to get it right and have a colon (double dot) - and not a single dot!!
Since the script in XAML for data binding takes a single 'dot' I have slipped into the easy habit of typing a single dot everywhere it seems, except in the becomes equal to ':=' that we xBasers all love ;-0)
Oh! and I currently am placing a double dot after 'self' which seems to be harder to drop as a habit (comes natural after all these years). Just tried it and it fails with a single dot after 'self'. Why is this then?
Have you got any advice on all of this 'dot' stuff, or should I just go with the flow and do as I wish, like, choose ? And how does that affect the eNotes I write for others? Should I be following some kind of an unwritten rule?
Here are some code samples from a compiling and working app :-
I fully understand - AND - look forward to 'self.' as I use it a lot with a double dot at the moment. 'super.' is not so important to me but I will be consistent with both.
Yes, I also agree with you about us understanding the meaning (difference) - BUT - since we will in a C# world, and need samples/examples, then I think it is a great benefit (to many) for us to be able to have both ways.
So to summarise ? I will just do my thing and use what feels right to me at the time ;-0) For creating my eNotes for "ClickStart" and conferences.
