Method Chaining of Objects in C#

Method Chaining of Objects in C#

I’m sure that many of you c# programmers know this already but I’m posting this here more as a way to reinforce this in my own brain as I seem to forget this…
When you have an object that you want to apply a number of methods to, the order of processing will always be from the inside out.
For example:
String.Format("[{0}]", name.Trim().Replace("\"", string.Empty)); will return [Deborah ] while
String.Format("[{0}]", name.Replace("\"", string.Empty).Trim()); will return is [Deborah].

So there you have it!

I'm a technologist at heart, assisting companies best utilize the Internet to market themselves and sell their products and services online. This includes organizations as large as Google and as small as one or two individuals.
At Over The Top and Exhibit A Communications, I've programmed solutions for Google as well as at least one other company that was later acquired by Google.

I've been CTO of an Internet SaaS company and spent my time pretty evenly between guiding the future technical strategy of the company, architecting software solutions for my dev teams, designing and running a data center to service our clients world-wide as well as being a technical evangalist/sales engineer to our media clients large and small.

I've also been Chief Photographer of the Daily Sun/Post newspaper back when it was a 5-day a week daily newspaper.

I also spent a great many years as a beach lifeguardfor the City of San Clemente as well as Jr. Lifeguard instructor and then as it's program coordinator.
