Properties (set and get) in C#

In this article, we will find out about the C# properties, kinds of properties (set and get) with example.

C# properties

Properties are the individuals from a class, interface, and structure in C#. As we realize that, individuals or techniques for class and structure are known as “Fields“. Properties are an all-inclusive rendition of fields with the practically same syntax.

Utilizing properties, we can peruse and compose or control private fields. For example, we have a class name EMPLOYEE that contains private fields EMP_ID, EMP_NAME, EMP_SALARY. Ordinarily, we can’t get to those fields out of the class. However, utilizing Properties we can get to them.

Sorts of C# properties

There are two sorts of properties are utilizing to get to private fields:

  • set – To compose value in private fields
  • get – To peruse the value of private fields

Statement:

public int ID
{
	get
	{
		return EMP_ID;
	}

	set 
	{
		EMP_ID = value;
	}
}

public string NAME
{
	get
	{
		return EMP_NAME;
	}

	set 
	{
		EMP_NAME = value;
	}
}

public int SALARY
{
	get
	{
		return EMP_SALARY;
	}
	set 
	{
		EMP_SALARY = value;
	}
}

Example: With the assistance of the program, we can comprehend about properties effectively…

using System;
using System.Collections;
namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class EMPLOYEE
    {
        private int     EMP_ID      ;
        private string  EMP_NAME    ;
        private int     EMP_SALARY  ;

        public int ID
        {
            get
            {
                return EMP_ID;
            }

            set
            {
                EMP_ID = value;
            }
        }

        public string NAME
        {
            get
            {
                return EMP_NAME;
            }

            set
            {
                EMP_NAME = value;
            }
        }

        public int SALARY
        {
            get
            {
                return EMP_SALARY;
            }
            set
            {
                EMP_SALARY = value;
            }
        }

    }

    
         
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            EMPLOYEE E = new EMPLOYEE();

            E.ID   = 101;
            E.NAME = "Duggu Pandit";
            E.SALARY = 1000000;

            Console.WriteLine("ID     : " + E.ID);
            Console.WriteLine("NAME   : " + E.NAME);
            Console.WriteLine("SALARY : " + E.SALARY);

        }
    }
}

Output

    ID		: 101
    NAME	: Duggu Pandit
    SALARY	: 1000000
