the values of local variables are often determined by the current user. That is, a user may not know that it is possible to pass the window object, its current coordinates, or the screen size onto the method (such as setContent(),) which will change the value (this example is from the book The Elegant Modernist Programmer by Robert Martin, but it’s a good pattern for any programmer).
If you pass a window to setContent(), it will change the current user’s window, the window’s coordinates, and the screen size. This is just one of many reasons to pass the window object to setContent(). However, there’s something more to it than that. If your method is called setContent(String, Object, int, int), then setting a parameter on a method that has no parameter is a pretty bad idea.
We were planning to call this method on one of the “hidden” windows. We don’t want to use the variable, because that variable will never be used. We don’t want to pass a variable that is not used.
I like them all the way down. Theres a lot of good advice there.
A better way to approach this is to make the variable a local variable.
SetContentString is a way to provide a way to retrieve values of a local variable. The value for this parameter is a local variable. A local variable is a local variable that is created when you call SetContentString. I can’t remember whether one variable or a function is called in this way. It’s used frequently in programming to pass data over to another function. This is a good place to look for a local variable.
The last thing I can think of is that I would rather have my data object be a local variable than a local variable. What I don’t like about this is that it tends to make the data object look like it’s just a class, instead of a variable. Instead of storing the value of that local variable as a local variable, I’d rather have it be as a class object instead of a local variable.
In theory, you could do this by using a local variable to hold the value of the variable and then use that value. However, when you’re using a class to hold the values of the local variables, it may be more beneficial to just use getters and setters for the data and let the class handle the actual storing and retrieval of the data.
If you have a class that is storing a number, you should consider using a getter and setter to retrieve the value of the class instead of using a local variable. This helps prevent confusion from having a local variable that holds the value of another variable of the same class.
