The accessor of a property contains the executable statements associated with getting (reading or computing) or setting (writing) the property.

syntax :

set {accessor-body}
get {accessor-body}

where:

accessor-body
The block that contains the statements to be executed when the accessor is invoked.

private string name;   // the Name field
public string Name   // the Name property
{
   get
   {
      return name;
   }
}
Employee e1 = new Employee();
...
Console.Write(e1.Name);   // The get accessor is invoked here
-------------------
public string Name
{
   get
   {
      return name;
   }
   set
   {
      name = value;
   }
}

e1.Name = "Anu";   // The set accessor is invoked here

Hi!

1.You have a class
class MyClass {}

2.and then you decide to have a variable
class MyClass {
private string myVariable;

}

3.then you decide to have it public, so it can be accessed publicly
class MyClass {
public string myVariable;
}

4. Now the one using your public variable, is assigning all type of values
   ex : Your public variable is  
          public int myAge
         any one is assigning values like 500, 1002 values to this varaible, hnec you want to put some check
         and you introduce
        set {}
       which helps you   validate the stuff before assigning the value

        On same path user should be only allowed to set the value and and should not be able to read it.
       or want to let user get the value of your variable in some other form and hence we have
       get{}

5. Therefore the birth of Property with get{} and set{}

Thanks!
