Public Access Specifiers (C#)

In this chapter you will learn:
  • What is public access specifier?
  • What is the boundary of public access specifier?
  • How to use public access specifier in C# programming?

The class member, that is defined as a public can be accessed by other class members that are initialized outside the class. A public member can be accessed from anywhere even outside the namespace.

Example:

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

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

    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            access ac = new access();
            Console.Write("Enter your name:\t");
            // Accepting value in public variable that is outside the class
            ac.name = Console.ReadLine();
            ac.print();

            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}

 

Output

Enter your name:     Steven Clark
My name is Steven Clark
