I'm working on an application an we need conditional statements for multiple locations.
There could be two or more locations.

Is there another way of coding for a certain location?
So far, I would just use a conditional statement.
if (Properties.Settings.Default.Location == "abc")
                {
                   //do stuff
                }

well most obvious is using switch(){} but that may not save you much.

create the do stuff method()

switch (Properties.Setting.Default.Location)
{
     case "abc":
              dostuff("abc");
               break;
    case "bcd":
              dostuff("bcd")
              break;
}

Yeah I thought about that too, What about creating an enumerator?
Then when I instantiate the class,  I can set a property with the current location.

if (Location == Locations.Texas)
{
    //do stuff
}

an enumerator will still require you to check which it is somehow using if or switch.

The creation of a class with methods / branches that will process depending on the value of its location property would be a clean way to implement this, but you still need to check the value in the class, just not in the calling method.

You could create a class that has specific methods and properties

then create a class for each location based on the first class you created and override any mothods or properties that are diferent for that location

Then when some processing just call the correct method.

Look into Object Oriented Programming.

what I am talking about is  inheritance and  polymorphism which are two major concepts in object oriented programming.  The link is an example that explains the concept and how to apply it.
