C# program to demonstrate the use of #define preprocessor

Here, we are going to learn about the #define preprocessor and its C# implementation.
Submitted by Nidhi, on September 11, 2020

Here we will demonstrate the use of #define preprocessors in the C# program, here we will check defined macros to display messages on the console screen.

Program:

The source code to demonstrate the use of #define preprocessor is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully on Microsoft Visual Studio.

//C# program to demonstrate the use of #define preprocessor

#define PRINT_MSG_TYPE1

using System;
class Program
{
    static void Main()
    {
        #if PRINT_MSG_TYPE1
            Console.WriteLine("Print message type1 on console screen");
        #endif

        #if PRINT_MSG_TYPE2
            Console.WriteLine("Print message type2 on console screen");
        #endif
    }
}

Output:

Print message type1 on console screen
Press any key to continue . . .

Explanation:

In the above program, we demonstrate the use of #define macro. Here we defined a macro PRINT_MSG_TYPE1 at the top in our program. Then we checked defined macros in the Main() method. Here we defined PRINT_MSG_TYPE1 macro but we did not define PRINT_MSG_TYPE2 macro that's why the message "Print message type1 on console screen" is printed.
