If fluent expressions

It's possible to execute fluent comparisons expression with the syntax: <value>.IfGreater(<value-to-compare>).Then(<result-if-compare-is-true>).

The methods for comparison operations are: IfGreater, IfGreaterOrEqual, IfLest. IfLessOrEqual, If and IfNot.

Rules:

  • When condition it's false, result the pipeline is <value>.
  • When <value> or <value-to-compare> is null:
    • Result only true if both are null and comparison is equality operation If.
    • When an only value is null, the result is true if the operation is not equality comparison IfNot.
    • When <value> is Nullable<>, <result-if-compare-is-true> always if Nullable<> data type.
    • But when <value> is not Nullable<>, <result-if-compare-is-true> allow use Nullable<> and not Nullable<> data type.
    • All other operations comparisons result in false.
  • It's possible return null value at <result-if-compare-is-true>, but then indicated syntax is <value>.NullIf(<value-to-compare>).

Examples:

<IComparable>.IfGreater(10).Then(5)
<IComparable>.IfGreaterOrEqual(10).Then(5)
<IComparable>.IfLest(10).Then(5)
<IComparable>.IfLessOrEqual(10).Then(5)
<IComparable>.If(10).Then(5)
<IComparable>.IfNot(10).Then(5)

Delegates expression only executes when the condition it's true.

<IComparable>.IfGreater(10).Then(() => 5)
<IComparable>.IfGreaterOrEqual(10).Then(() => 5)
<IComparable>.IfLest(10).Then(() => 5)
<IComparable>.IfLessOrEqual(10).Then(() => 5)
<IComparable>.If(10).Then(() => 5)
<IComparable>.IfNot(10).Then(() => 5)

Other fluent comparison operations:

// IfNullExtensions
<object>.IfNull(<output-value-when-null>)
<string>.IfNullOrEmpty(<output-value-when-null-or-empty-string>)
<string>.IfNullOrWhiteSpace(<output-value-when-null-or-empty-white-space>)

// NullIfExtensions
<object>.NullIf(<comparison-value>)
<floating-point>.NullIf(<comparison-value>, <tolerance-to-comparasion>)

<string>.NullIf(<comparison-value>, <ignore-case>)
<string>.NullIfEmpty(<comparison-value>)
<string>.NullIfWhiteSpace(<comparison-value>)

<IComparable>.NullIfIn(<comparison-value>)
<IComparable>.NullIfBetween(<comparison-value>)

Data Types

ISimpleResult, SimpleResult and SimpleResult< TValue>

This structure has success and message for simple method result, extensible with generic TValue on "Value" property.

SimpleResult ok = SimpleResult.Ok(<optional-message>);
SimpleResult fail = SimpleResult.Fail("Fail message");

// Implict conversions
SimpleResult ok = true;
SimpleResult fail = "Fail message"
SimpleResult fail = new Exception("Fail message")


// Initializer
var result = new SimpleResult
{
    Success = true,
    Message = "Successfully processed"
}

To improve then development experience, there are implicit conversions to assign data from:

  • bool: To set or verify property Success.
  • string: To set fail message and Success to false.
  • Exception: To set fail message, Exception and Success to false.
  • TValue: To set value and Success to true (Even if null).

And implicit conversions to assingn data to:

  • bool:
    • SimpleResult: Get data from property Success.
    • SimpleResult<TValue>: Get data from property Success
  • Exception: Get data from property Exception
  • TValue: Get data from property Value

The property SuccessAndHasValue check if Success == true and Value != null in SimpleResult<TValue>.

Caution on SimpleResult<TValue>: Implicit comparison if (mySimpleResultVariable) is equivalent to if (mySimpleResultVariable.Success).
Use explicit if (mySimpleResultVariable.SuccessAndHasValue) when result value can be null with success is true

Use cases:

public SimpleResult Execute(Args args)
{
    if (args == null)
        return "Argument cannot be null";  // <===== Implicit cast to failure result
    try
    {
        // Execute actions
        return true; // <===== Implicit cast success result
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        return e; // <===== Implicit cast to failure result
    }
}

public SimpleResult<int> Execute2(Args args)
{
    if (args == null)
        return "Argument cannot be null";  // <===== Implicit cast to failure result
    try
    {
        // Execute actions
        return 10; // <===== Implicit cast success result
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        return e; // <===== Implicit cast to failure result
    }
}

// ...

var result = Execute(...);
var result2 = Execute2(...);

if (result && result2) // <===== Implicit cast to boolean
{
    // ...
}


Try<TSuccess, TFailure>

Auxiliary data type to increment the expressibility of method results when success and failure need different structures.
To facilitate development there is support for implicit conversion.

public void Try<PersonCreated, CustomError> Save(Person value) 
{
    ...
    if (condition)
        return new CustomError() { Code = 999, Message = "Failure message" }
    return new PersonCreated { Id = 123 };
}

...

var result = Save(person);
if (result)
    Console.WriteLine(result.Value.Id);
else
    Console.WriteLine($"Error {result.Failure.Code}: {result.Failure.Message}");

Settings

It's possible set default settings for library:

Extensions.GlobalSettings.Configure(cfg => cfg
    .FloatAndDoubleTolerance(default-float-and-double-comparasion-tolerance) // Default is 0.00001f

Development Guidelines

  • Create file with extensions method name
  • this argument name must be value for single object or values to IEnumerable inheritances
  • Put new file into folder /src/Extensions/<extended-data-type>
    • Expressions methods like If, NullIf, Is, In, EmptyIf, Between, must be located in src/Extensions/Comparable folder
    • Numbers extensions methods must bet located in src/Extensions/Number
  • The I prefix for interfaces must be omitted from the folder name.
  • src\Settings\MaestriaExtensionSettings: File to configure global defaults behaviors
  • String extensions methods should use nullable input and non-nullable output.
