Implementing properties to access fields
After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Encapsulate logical fields by using properties.
Control read access to properties by declaring get accessors.
Control write access to properties by declaring set accessors.
Create interfaces that declare properties.
Implement interfaces containing properties by using structures and classes.
Generate properties automatically based on field definitions.
Use properties to initialize objects.
