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;
