What does strongly typed means in .NET framework?
This morning was going through a book where I found a paragraph as stated below :
Each data field in a table is a strongly typed data member, fully compliant with .NET’s Common Type System.
Does the above lines means " that objects written in different languages can interact with each other like "
And if it means the above lines what does exactly the above line means by saying different languages can interact with each other like
I am trying to work out with an example but no success till now.
Or is it something that i am missing and need to know. Please help me to understand.
Thanks in advance
For e.g you cannot Multiply or Divide two different types i.e
String vs Integer
var answer = 1 * "1"; // you cannot do this
You have to explicity cast it, this is known as strongly typed
where as if you see in php
$x = "3" * 1; // is correct in php
So here you dont need to explicitly cast it.
