Logical XOR

x ^ y

Integer bitwise XOR, boolean logical XOR

Logical OR

x | y

Integer bitwise OR, boolean logical OR

Conditional AND

x && y

Evaluates y only if x is true

Conditional OR

x || y

Evaluates y only if x is false


x ? y : z

Evaluates y if x is true, z if x is false


x = y


x op= y

Compound assignment; supported operators are

1.5 Statements

The actions of a program are expressed using statements. C# supports several different kinds of statements, a number of which are defined in terms of embedded statements.

A block permits multiple statements to be written in contexts where a single statement is allowed. A block consists of a list of statements written between the delimiters { and }.

Declaration statements are used to declare local variables and constants.

Expression statements are used to evaluate expressions. Expressions that can be used as statements include method invocations, object allocations using the new operator, assignments using = and the compound assignment operators, and increment and decrement operations using the ++ and -- operators.

Selection statements are used to select one of a number of possible statements for execution based on the value of some expression. In this group are the if and switch statements.

Iteration statements are used to repeatedly execute an embedded statement. In this group are the while, do, for, and foreach statements.

Jump statements are used to transfer control. In this group are the break, continue, goto, throw, and return statements.

The try...catch statement is used to catch exceptions that occur during execution of a block, and the try...finally statement is used to specify finalization code that is always executed, whether an exception occurred or not.

The checked and unchecked statements are used to control the overflow checking context for integral-type arithmetic operations and conversions.

The lock statement is used to obtain the mutual-exclusion lock for a given object, execute a statement, and then release the lock.

The using statement is used to obtain a resource, execute a statement, and then dispose of that resource.

The following table lists C#’s statements and provides an example for each.



Local variable declaration

static void Main() { int a; int b = 2, c = 3; a = 1; Console.WriteLine(a + b + c); }
