Let's be clear: I'm not looking for an opinion, but an answer, an actual documented source or reference if possible. (Preferably something from MSDN?)
In .NET when creating a class, the basic structure I follow goes along the lines of:
- Creating private variable fields.
- Defining the class properties using get/set.
- Creating the constructors.
- Adding extra class methods for database functionality.
- Misc functionality.
How I used to name my private variables:
private string _myString;
How I currently name my private variables:
private string iMyString;
I have been told that using the "_" character for private variable declarations has negative effects. which I then changed my practice to use the "i" character. I find that using the same character for these declarations helps with the speed of creating class properties, and overall development time.
My question is: What is the industry standard to the class private variable naming structure? AND, Why is using the "_" character considered a bad practice?
I've done quite a bit of google searches and even on the MSDN website the pages I viewed had their examples change regularly and thus inconsistent.
I'm not sure if this is considered a problem per say, but I tend to practice quality code.
