how do you right the 'get' and 'set' accessors for an array property

So I'm trying to use a instance variable that is an array. I want to write a property that will access this private instance variable. I can't find the syntax to do this.

Hi, syntax is:

      public class MyClass {
            //Instance array variable
            private string[] dataArray;

            public string[] Data {
                  get {
                        return this.dataArray;
                  set {
                        this.dataArray = value;

If your defining a collection class then you could also make use of an indexer, which would allow users of your class to use the [] operator on a reference (just like using a standard array):


MyClass myClass = new MyClass();
string someData = myClass[0];
