Maintainability warnings support library and application maintenance.
In This Section
An instance method declares a parameter or a local variable whose name matches an instance field of the declaring type, which leads to errors.
A type is more than four levels deep in its inheritance hierarchy. Deeply nested type hierarchies can be difficult to follow, understand, and maintain.
This rule measures the number of linearly independent paths through the method, which is determined by the number and complexity of conditional branches.
The name of an instance field starts with "s_", or the name of a static (Shared in Visual Basic) field starts with "m_".
A type or method has a low maintainability index value. A low maintainability index indicates that a type or method is probably difficult to maintain and would be a good candidate for redesign.
This rule measures class coupling by counting the number of unique type references that a type or method contains.
