Contract.Assume Method (Boolean, String)


Instructs code analysis tools to assume that a condition is true, even if it cannot be statically proven to always be true, and displays a message if the assumption fails.

Namespace:   System.Diagnostics.Contracts
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

static member Assume : 
        condition:bool *
        userMessage:string -> unit


Type: System.Boolean

The conditional expression to assume true.

Type: System.String

The message to post if the assumption fails.

If userMessage is not a constant string literal, the contract may not be understood by tools.

At run time, using this method is equivalent to using the Assert(Boolean, String) method.
