Let’s see that with some examples in this article.
Target-typed new expressions
C# 9, now, allows to omit the type of the object you are instantiating. Obviously you can’t combine it with var keyword 🙂 . You can’t combine it with a ternary statement neither, it will lead to a compilation error.
Example with Linqpad6-beta:
Target-typed with conditional operators
C# 9 brings also some improvements with target-typed conditional operators, such as ternary statements. The code below led to a compilation error prior C# 9, and now C# 9 allows this (shared type in ternary statements):
