Coding rule of thumb

If you find yourself putting #regions inside a method (or if you’re a VB.NET programmer - wishing that you could do such a thing) you might want to think about making that a separate method.


You know - that’s a seriously good point. I do like my regions though. I love the abstraction of "CTRL+M+O"-ing away all the code to see those serene, quiet, gentle grey boxes.

My only gripe with them is that nested regions all left-align, they don’t - well - nest :)

But this is coming from the layout-nazi himself.

It is true Aydsman - your love of regions knows no bounds.

Hi Joseph,

Yep, feel the same but I still wish I could use regions within methods in VB.NET…

And yep, Aydsman, I sure wish there was a way to nest them.

I reckon instrumentation is a (the?) valid reason for intra-method region methinks.

I have this pattern:

#region Instrumentation
#line hidden
if (TracingAtLevel(3))
#line default

You might be right Dan. Mitch said he felt the same way.
