Contract.Requires Method (Boolean)

Specifies a precondition contract for the enclosing method or property.

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

[ConditionalAttribute("CONTRACTS_FULL")]
public static void Requires(
	bool condition
)

Parameters

condition
Type: System.Boolean
The conditional expression to test.

  • This method call must be at the beginning of a method or property, before any other code.

  • This contract is exposed to clients; therefore, it must only reference members that are at least as visible as the enclosing method.

  • Use this method instead of the Contract.Requires<TException>(Boolean) method when backward compatibility does not force you to throw a particular exception.
