How do I use the singleton pattern in C#?
Learn how to create thread-safe instances with the singleton pattern in C#.
The singleton pattern, due to being limited to a single thread-safe instance and its last minute instantiation, has a reputation for being cumbersome. Using Visual Studio, Jeremy McPeak demonstrates how to create a class limited to one instance, and seal the singleton for improved runtime performance. Jeremy then shows you how to expose the private instance class variable using a static property. Novice C# beginners will be able to implement the singleton pattern correctly and make their classes thread safe.
