Ever wanted to compare two Dogs? Well now you can!
Dog(const int age = 1, const string name = "Un-named")
m_age = age;
m_name = name;
//Here's where it gets interesting...
bool operator ==(const Dog rhs); //rhs = right-hand side
bool Dog::operator ==(const Dog rhs)
return (m_age == rhs.m_age && m_name == rhs.m_name);
Dog spike(3, "Spike"), brownie(7, "Brownie");
//Notice that brownie is on the right-hand side
//of the == operator
bool dogs_are_equal = (spike == brownie); //false
In this tutorial I teach you how to save settings to an internal config!
Saving settings to a config is really easy in C#, so let’s begin the tutorial!
1. Right-click on the project root in the Solution Explorer:
2. Select “Properties” from the list:
3. You should see something similar to this:
4. Set the names, types, and default values to whatever you like. DO NOT change the scope to “Application” if you plan on being able to edit the settings from the code.
5. Getting and Setting the property:
[Variable Type] [Variable Name] = Properties.Settings.Default.[Name of Property];
Properties.Settings.Default.[Name of Property] = [String, Int, etc. (As long as it is the same type as the property)];
In this example, I am checking if the config property LastSaveDirectory is not empty. If it is not empty, set the SaveFileDialog‘s Initial Directory to the stored property.
How to loop through all Properties and display them in a MessageBox:
NOTE: I would recommend a String Builder if you plan on having a lot of properties.
My first programming language was Python. I didn’t choose it because someone told me it was the easiest to start with or because of it’s vast collection of libraries and frameworks. I chose it because I thought the name was cool. That’s it. (Was in 8th grade at the time)
Looking back, I am so glad I chose Python. I used to be an instant gratification monkey, and Python was easy enough to pick up quickly. The vast collection of libraries and frameworks mentioned earlier prevented me from losing interest for quite some time.
I know I said Python was my first programming language, but this is only partial because of two distinct facts:
1. I started scripting in batch before Python. I knew the windows command line like the back of my hand as well as batch scripting before I touched Python.
