Ensure objects are used

Description

Creating an object and then not using it can lead to unexpected behavior if the constructor contains side effects.

If the code intentionally creates and drops an object to trigger the constructor side effects, consider moving them to a separate function and call it directly.

Non-Compliant Code Examples

class MyClass {
    public void myMethod()
    {
        new MyClass();
    }
}

Compliant Code Examples

class MyClass {
    public void myMethod()
    {
        var obj = new MyClass();
    }
}
