What I’ve learned today: C# .NET Generic Constraints

Programming, What I've learned today

Constraints list on MSDN.

Using example - create an instance of an object that must have a public parameterless constructor:

public class ObjectFactory<T> where T : new()
    public static T CreateObject()

Advantage: specifying a class that does not provide a default constructor will now generate a compile time error.
