#Net5 – C#9 target-typed new expressions are super cool ๐Ÿ†’๐Ÿ†’๐Ÿ†’

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

I know I’m late to the party here, however I’m still enjoying some of the new C# 9 features a lot. I just realized that now, I can create objects in a different way, which is still super clear to read.

Disclaimer: some of the new features are cool, however my gut told me that they will make code harder to read. I also understand that I have 20 years of writing C# code in my back, so I need to find the balance here.

As usual, 2 lines of code are the best way to showcase this:

// old school
var pointOldSchool = new System.Drawing.Point(3, 5);

// new school and still very readable
System.Drawing.Point pointCSharpNine = new(3, 5);

// crappy output
Console.WriteLine("Old School: var pointOldSchool = new System.Drawing.Point(3, 5);");

Console.WriteLine("C#9: System.Drawing.Point pointCSharpNine = new(3, 5);");

This this output as expected:

Old School: var pointOldSchool = new System.Drawing.Point(3, 5);
C#9: System.Drawing.Point pointCSharpNine = new(3, 5);

I like this new one ๐Ÿ‘†

Happy coding!
