OOP Topic:
Code Snippet of the Month

In C# you can set the visibility of a member field to any visibility: private, protected, public, internal or protected internal. You can intialize a member field with a default when declared. If you set the member field value in your constructor, it will override the default value. Finally, you can use the static modifier (no instance required) and readonly modifier (similar to a constant).

Define class:

public class Cyborg : System.Object

public virtual void IntroduceYourself()
MessageBox.Show("Hi, I do not have a name yet.");

Create object from class:

Cyborg T1 = new Cyborg();

C# Topic:
Definition of the Month: Reference Data type variables

Variables that only contain a reference to the values. Reference data type variables only contain a reference to it's constituent value.  Reference data types include objects and strings.  Assignment of one reference type variable to another copies the reference, thus changes to the values in one variable changes the values in the other.
