#280 – Implicitly-Typed Arrays

In the same way that you can declare an implicitly-typed variable, letting the compiler figure out the type of the variable’s value, you can declare implicitly-typed arrays.

In the example below, we declare and initialize both implicitly-typed variables and implicitly-typed arrays.  The compiler infers the type–shown in the associated comment.

            // Implicitly-typed variables
            var x = 42;         // int
            var s = "Hooey";    // string

            // Implicitly-typed arrays
            var someArray = new[] { 5, 6, 7 };             // int[]
            var arrB = new[] { new Dog("Bob"), null };     // Dog[]
