Camillia asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I had a code review done for my app. This is the comment I got. Not sure what it means..
private int? Ethnic
            int? Ethnic = null; // CODE REVIEW: This variable declaration hides Property, consider changing the name or removing the declaration.
            if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(ddlEthnic.SelectedValue)) //not a required field
                Ethnic = int.Parse(ddlEthnic.SelectedValue);

            return Ethnic;
