Comparing asp to asp.net

Oh the Joy of .net and object orientation in general:

 

Compare the old asp way.   Just functions with single return values:

 

                                              

if rules("isafirstname",firstname) = true and rules("isasurname",wholename(0)) = true then

     transmute =("L-CAPNAMEINIT{_}"&propercase(firstname)& " " & propercase(wholename(0)))

elseif rules("isafirstname",firstname) = true then

     transmute =("L-CAPFIRSTNAMEINIT{_}"&propercase(firstname))

end if

 

So I would wind up stuffing a load of data into the return string and then reassembling it in the calling function.

 

First go on Tuples today.  Seems to me a sort-of “quick fire” multi-return type where you don’t want to go the whole hog of returning a struct.

 

Dim foundRows = boysnames.Select("name = '" & Replace(username, "'", "''") & "'")

 

If foundRows.Length >= 1 Then

   Return New Tuple(Of Boolean, String, String)(True, foundRows.CopyToDataTable.Rows(0).Item("friendlyname").ToString, "Found in Boy's Names Table")

End If

 

Return New Tuple(Of Boolean, String, String)(False, "", "")

 

How cool is that?

 

If there are any old farts like me still debating wether to go for .net and object orientation in general.  The answer has to be “do it now!”.

YouTube suggestions

 

 

So everybody bar Tanya uses my account to watch videos.  We use it on the main television too.  Only thing missing from this was a Shark Tank episode but I could not get one to appear pressing F5.

 

Pinks are definitely Isabel.  Blues are Henry and Green is me.
