VERY NEWBIE: How to add properties to existing variable?

Dear Experts,

I'm switching from Java/JBuilder to C#/Visual Studio 2005...

Given an existing variable in my code, is there a one-button way to generate properties for it?  I know there is a way to insert a NEW variable-properties set, but I find this inconvenient.

Or better, is there a way to see a list of all variables, and just check them off to generate properties?  (JBuilder does this...)

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Right click the variable, select Refactor->Encapsulate field from the context menu.

I don't know any way to do it with several variables at once

Great!  Would have sworn I tried that already.  I guess Visual Studio can tell I'm a newbie...
