Do you avoid casts and use the "as operator" instead?

Last updated by Brady Stroud [SSW] about 1 month ago.See history

Use casts only if: a. You know 100% that you get that type back b. You want to perform a user-defined conversion

private void AMControlMouseLeftButtonUp(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
{
 var auc = (AMUserControl)sender;

 var aucSessionId = auc.myUserControl.Tag;
 // snip snip snip
}

Bad example

private void AMControlMouseLeftButtonUp(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
{
 var auc = sender as AMUserControl;

 if (auc != null)
 {
 var aucSessionId = auc.myUserControl.Tag;
 // snip snip snip
 }

}

Good example
