V3122. Uppercase (lowercase) string is compared with a different lowercase (uppercase) string.

Nov. 24, 2016

The analyzer detected a comparison of two strings whose characters are in different cases.

Consider the following example:

void Some(string s)
{
  if (s.ToUpper() == "abcde")
  {
    ....
  }
}

After casting the 's' variable's value to upper case, the resulting string is compared with a string where all the characters are lowercase. As this comparison is always false, this code is incorrect and can be fixed in the following way:

void Some(string s)
{
  if (s.ToLower() == "abcde")
  {
    ....
  }
}

Consider another example:

void Some()
{
  string s = "abcde";
  ....
  if (s.Contains("AbCdE"))
  {
    ....
  }
}

While all the characters of the 's' variable's value are lowercase, an attempt is made to check if the string contains a mixed-case substring. Obviously, the 'Contains' method will always return 'false', which also indicates an error.
