Properties in .NET

Property in C#:

Property ? it is a special method that can return a current object?s state or set it. Simple syntax of properties can see in the following example:

public int Old 
   get {return m_old;}
   set {m_old = value;}
public string Name 
   get {return m_name;} 

Here are two types of properties. A first one can set or get field of class named m_old, and the second is read only. That?s mean it can only get current object?s state.

The significance of these properties is its usability. These properties need not be called with any function names like objectname.get or objectname.set etc., But they can be directly assigned the values or retrieve the values.

The VB .NET Syntax of declaring a property is as follows:-

Public Property X() As Integer
Set(ByVal Value As Integer
     x = value
End Property
