Dissecting local functions in C#.
At first glance, seemed like a complication, an ugly addition to the clean and elegant C# landscape! I didn’t get it.
Then, boom – I fell for these misfits.
I began to understand their charm.
Inserting the lower-level details into separate methods to make the intent of the code clear – that’s how it usually works, right? It’s a good strategy, but can lead to a clutter of tiny methods making the code difficult to decipher. Here lies the gray area, a fine balance to master.
Ever had code too specific and small for a separate method, yet you had to isolate it?
Enter local functions, your savior!
They simplify your code and transport the specifics into a function nestled at the end of your method. Out of sight, but not out of mind – just under the rug.
