.NET Object Extension Library (formerly NOX) - renamed from NOX since there were several overlapping projects of various areas using NOX as a codename.

What is Augment? By definition augment means to make (something) greater by adding to it. While .NET has an abundance of libraries that make coding fantastic, I found myself reusing and copying several extension files from project to project. So I decided to place them into a common library and share with anyone who is interested. This is a small collection of common code I've collected over the years from various sources (some known, others unfortunately forgotten).

See the WIKI for more details (otherwise check out the code itself)


DateTime, TimeSpan Extensions

DateTime.Now.BeginningOfDay()		// Week, Month, Year, Quarter
DateTime.Now.EndOfDay()				// Week, Month, Year, Quarter


DateTime.Now.ToRelativeDateString()	//	3 seconds ago or 3 seconds from now

3.Seconds()							//	returns TimeSpan
3.Seconds().Ago()					//	returns DateTime


Enum Extensions

enum MyEnum

string e = MyEnum.Pass.ToDescription();

if (e.ToEnum<MyEnum> == MyEnum.Fail) // etc.

Int, Double Extensions



String, StringBuilder Extensions

string text = "123abc";

text = text.GetLeftOf("abc");

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(text);

sb.AppendIf(text.Contains("abc"), "def" /*true*/, "456" /*false*/);
// or
sb.AppendIf(text.Contains("abc"), "def");

string so = null;

if (so.IsNullOrEmtpy()) so = "what!";

string d = so.AssertNotNull("abc");
