C# does not support #define constants.  Instead you create const variable.  The const variables are resolved at compile time.  You can define them anywhere.  


// Example: Create a class GlobalConstants and define a public const variable inside to create global constants

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;

namespace BusinessLayer
{
    public class GlobalConstants
    {
        public  const int UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE = 0x2;
    }
}

Reference it in other classes using
...
Console.WriteLine(BusinessLayer.GlobalConstants.ACCOUNTDISABLE);

When this is compiled, the compiler will replace the above statement with:
Console.WriteLine(0x2);
