The following code example demonstrates how the TypeCode enumeration can be used. In a decision block inside the WriteObjectInfo method, the TypeCode of an Object parameter is examined, and an appropriate message is written to the console.

static void WriteObjectInfo(object testObject)
{
    TypeCode    typeCode = Type.GetTypeCode( testObject.GetType() );

    switch( typeCode )
    {
        case TypeCode.Boolean:
            Console.WriteLine("Boolean: {0}", testObject);
            break;

        case TypeCode.Double:
            Console.WriteLine("Double: {0}", testObject);
            break;

        default:
            Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", typeCode.ToString(), testObject);
            break;
    }
}
