Queue in C# / Add and Remove items from Queue in C# (.NET)

Queues are common in real world - Flight checkins to School. Here is the way you can use it in C#

private static void CustomerServiceQueue()
        {
            Queue CSQ = new Queue();

            CSQ.Enqueue("Gautam");
            CSQ.Enqueue("Nargis");
            CSQ.Enqueue("Beth");
            CSQ.Enqueue("Slobodan");

            Console.WriteLine("Peeking Queue: {0}", CSQ.Peek());

            Console.WriteLine("Check if CSQ Contains Beth : {0}", CSQ.Contains("Beth"));

            while (CSQ.Count > 0)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(CSQ.Dequeue());
            }
           

        }

Contains checks for presence of the given object in the queue. Peek returns the first element from the queue

Dequeuue does the same as Peek, however, it also removes the object Digg Technorati Delicious StumbleUpon Reddit BlinkList Furl Mixx Facebook Google Bookmark Yahoo

How to Override ToString Method in C# (VB.NET)

Customize ToString Method in C# (VB.NET)

Overriding ToString Method has its own advantages.

For example, the following class has four fields

public class ClassExec
    {
        string _Name;
        
        public string Name
        {
            get { return _Name; }
            set { _Name = value ;}
        }

        public string Source
        {
            get;
            set;
        }

        public string Destination
        { get; set; }

        public DateTime  DOT
        {
            get;
            set;
        }

If you try to use the ClassExec.ToString() method it will return the fully qualified Class name as default. This doesn't help us much.

Instead let us override the ToString method to return the four fields in a formatted way

public override string ToString()
        {
            return (Name + ' ' + Source + ' ' + Destination + ' ' + DOT);
        }

The following code will now produce the desired output:

ClassExec cls = new ClassExec();
            cls.Name = "Jackob Johnson";
            cls.Source = "Socchi";
            cls.Destination = "Moscow";
            cls.DOT = DateTime.Parse("12-Jan-2012");

            Console.WriteLine(cls.ToString());

System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializer.XmlSerializer() is inaccessible due to its protection level

One reason for this error is if you haven't mentioned the type when you initialize the XmlSerializer object

XmlSerializer Xser = new XmlSerializer()

can be replaced with

XmlSerializer Xser = new XmlSerializer(this.GetType() );

            string userName = Environment.UserName;

            folderName = Path.Combine(folderName, userName);

            if (Directory.Exists(folderName) == false)
            {
                Directory.CreateDirectory(folderName);
            }
