Properties associate values with a class or a structure. There are two types of properties:
- Stored properties: Stored properties will store variable or constant values as part of an instance of a class or structure. Stored properties can also have property observers that can monitor the property for changes and respond with custom actions when the value of the property changes.
- Computed properties: These do not store a value themselves, but retrieve and possibly set other properties. The value returned by a computed property can also be calculated when it is requested.
