What is Properties in C# ?

Properties is just an approach to access the variable (by default private) of one class into another class without breaking the concept of data hiding. Suppose we have opened a account in a bank and we have deposited some amount in that account. In order to withdraw amount from that account, we will have to follow a procedure to get that amount. That is I have to fill Money Withdrawal form.

In terms of Properties, he cash we have deposited in bank account is private to account. But to get access to that account, certain procedure needs to be followed. The procedure will not break concept of data hiding.

  1. Type of Property will be as same as type of variable declared.
  2. Every variable will have separate property defined.
  3. Give name to property similar to variable name.

Program for Properties in C#

using System;

class Candidate
string skills;
int age;
public string CanSkills
{return skills;}
set { skills = value;}
public int CanAge
get{return age;}
set{age = value;}

class Hr
public static void Main()
Candidate shubham = new Candidate();
shubham.CanSkills = “A, B, C”;
shubham.CanAge = 23;
Console.WriteLine(“Skill set of Shubham is “+shubham.CanSkills);
Console.WriteLine(“Age of shubham is “+shubham.CanAge);


Skill set of Shubham is A, B, C
