C# Get Set Modifier

In this chapter you will learn:
  • What is get set modifier?
  • What is the benefit of using get set modifier?
  • How to use get set modifier in C# programming?

The get set accessor or modifier mostly used for storing and retrieving the value from the private field. The get accessor must return a value of property type where set accessor returns void. The set accessor uses an implicit parameter called value. In simple word, the get method used for retrieving the value from private field whereas set method used for storing the value in private variables.

 

Example:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace Get_Set
{
    class access
    {
        // String Variable declared as private
        private static string name;
        public void print()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("\nMy name is " + name);
        }

        public string Name //Creating Name property
        {
            get //get method for returning value
            {
                return name;
            }
            set // set method for storing value in name field.
            {
                name = value;
            }
        }
    }

    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            access ac = new access();
            Console.Write("Enter your name:\t");
            // Accepting value via Name property
            ac.Name = Console.ReadLine();
            ac.print();
            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}
