It’s a fairly simple method call. I haven’t studied the details, so I don’t know exactly what all of the parameters do. It looks like the first parameter is the data type, the second and third are a set of options we don’t need in this example, and the last parameter is the id of the element we want to databind. So what is wrong with this? I am needing to declare a lot of function parameters I don’t need for normal operations. It looks like an overload with just the element to databind would be what I would use for common usage.
What this code is doing is setting the private variables to default values when the parameters are null.
Now I could use the function like this and get the same results:
I could go further and make it even easier to on the developer by testing to see if the element is either a string or an object .
Now I could also use the method like this, even further reducing my cognitive load
