Hi there;

My supervisor told me that I should avoid magic numbering in C# programming.

What is this? Can you provide an example?

Kind regards.

hi,

magic numbering is a practice of defining\using hard coded values when you write your code.

why to avoid magic numbering: poor readability and understanding

for better readability and understanding of the source code use enums by giving meaningful names... this is the good practice to avoid magic numbering...
