C# – if we didn’t have the is keyword

leave a comment »


I am so fixated with the as keyword these days, that I forgot how I’d do a type comparison if the as keyword never existed. We’d have to use a combination of myobj.GetType() and the typeof operator.

            catch (Exception eX)
                if (eX is SmtpFailedRecipientException)
                    Console.WriteLine("SmtpFailedRecipientException is thrown.");
                else if (eX.GetType() == typeof(SmtpException))
                    Console.WriteLine("SmtpException is thrown.");
                    Console.WriteLine("{0} is thrown.", eX.GetType().ToString());
