Button myButton = newButton();

10. How to use a partial class?

public partial class DailyExpenses  
    To make it more real, let us consider this class is used by the Husband .   
    He will add his expenses (in programming life , his codes )  
    public void AddExpensesByHus()  
public partial class DailyExpenses  
   To make it more real, let us consider this class is used by the Wife.

13. How can you delete a duplicate record from a table in SQL?

There are so many ways to do this. Here I am sharing what I use when I get that kind of situation.

I will create a temp table.

Copy the distinct data from the existing table to the temp table.

Empty the data in the existing table.

Insert the data from the temp table into the source table.

Here is the query to do that:

select distinct * into #tempTab From Address_Tab
delete from Address_Tab
insert into Address_Tab
select * from # tempTab
drop table # tempTab

14. When to use an override and new in C#?

  • We can use override when there is a virtual/abstract/override type of method in a base class.
  • We can use New when there is no virtual/abstract/override type of method in a base class.
