Layout Rules

Cause

The C# code contains multiple blank lines in a row.

Rule Description

To improve the readability of the code, StyleCop requires blank lines in certain situations, and prohibits blank lines in other situations. This results in a consistent visual pattern across the code, which can improve recognition and readability of unfamiliar code.

A violation of this rule occurs when the code contains more than one blank line in a row. For example:

    public bool Enabled

    {

        get

        {

            Console.WriteLine("Getting the enabled flag.");

 

 

            return this.enabled;

        }

    }

The code above would generate an instance of this violation, since it contains blank multiple lines in a row.

How to Fix Violations

To fix a violation of this rule, remove the extra blank lines.
