VB to .NET

Foreach Variable in C# generated code 

In C# a foreach variable can't be assignable, so to avoid a compilation error, the line must be commented. In VB.Net the iteration variable can be assigned so, this restriction is not applied.


Check the logic of the original VB6 function. In some cases the nothing assignation to the iteration variable is a way to stop the cycle. If this is the case use the break statement instead.For the given example, just remove the commented line and the EWI.

Sample VB6

Public Function TestCommentedLines(ByVal P() As String) As Integer
    Dim S
    Dim Count As Integer
    For Each S In P
    If Not S IsNothing Then
       Count = Count + 1
       S = Nothing
    End If
    Next S
    TestCommentedLines = Count
End Function

Target C#

public int TestCommentedLinesstring[] P)
    int Count = 0;
    foreach (string S in P)
       if (S != null)
         MessageBox.Show(S, Application.ProductName);
         //UPGRADE_NOTE: (2041) The following line was commented.
         //S = null;
    return Count;
