Avoid a Common Debugging Mistake

Normally most of designers do this:

if(someVariable == someValue)
{
  doSomeActions;
}
If you type '=' instead of '==', it will not be detected during the compilation. This means you could spend either seconds or days finding this mistake—depending on the project size and complexity. It will be noticed during the testing phase.

To avoid this, use the following style which notifies the compiler of the typo:


if(someValue == someVariable)
{
  doSomeActions;
}
