C# 8.0 Features

C# 8.0 is available in .Net Core 3.0 & .Net Standard.

Using Declarations

Now we can use using as a declaration rather than as a block.

using var file = new System.IO.StreamWriter(“WriteLines2.txt”);

Here the variable file will be disposed after end of scope.

Static Local Functions

Static Local Functions can be created within a Method which will not consume any Instance variables.

int M()


int y = 5; int x = 7;

return Add(x, y);

static int Add(int left, int right) => left + right;


Default Interface Methods

We can add default methods in Interfaces.  This will help in later versions of Interfaces.

interface IDefaultInterface
     int GetAge()
         return 18;

New Switch Structure

public static RGBColor FromRainbow(Rainbow colorBand)

=> colorBand switch {

Rainbow.Red => new RGBColor(0xFF, 0x00, 0x00),

Rainbow.Orange => new RGBColor(0xFF, 0x7F, 0x00),

_ => throw new ArgumentException(message: “invalid enum value”, paramName: nameof(colorBand)), };

// Saves “case” statement
