Favorite features in .NET 2.0

Edgar posted today about one of the new functions in .NET 2.0 to make your life easier, like using

instead of
aString != null && aString != "";

it reminded me about this video from Kit George where he shows some of the new cool little functions that will help you a lot

in .NET 2.0 you can now use:

if (aString.Contains(otherString))
instead of:
if (aString.IndexOf(otherString)<>0)


foreach(string line in File.ReadAllLines("c:\theFilePath"))

instead of:
string line;
using (StreamReader sr = new StreamReader("c:\TheFilePath")) {
while ((line = sr.ReadLine()) != null)

check out the video to learn more about these and other features

you'll also find the link on my delicious feed under videos
