Layout Rules

Cause

The while footer at the bottom of a do-while statement is separated from the statement by a blank line.

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 while keyword at the bottom of a do-while statement is separated from the main part of the statement by one or more blank lines. For example:

    do

    {

        Console.WriteLine("Loop forever");

    }

 

    while (true);

How to Fix Violations

To fix a violation of this rule, remove any blank lines before the while keyword.
