Using Get Set

Hi guys,

I have the following class:
public class DropdownColumnNumberMatch
        {
            public string RFQ_Number { get; set; }
        }

Open in new window


Then outside of that class:
private DropdownColumnNumberMatch Instance_DropdownColumnNumberMatch;

Open in new window


Then later in the project....

Instance_DropdownColumnNumberMatch = new DropdownColumnNumberMatch();

Instance_DropdownColumnNumberMatch.RFQ_Number = "Unset";

Open in new window


This is to set a default, I know im doing it wrong/inefficiently, now I tried the following but it errors, so how do I set a default in this case?

public class DropdownColumnNumberMatch
        {
            public string RFQ_Number { get { return RFQ_Number; } set { RFQ_Number = "Unset"; } }
        }

Thanks,
Dean

set default in constructor:
    public class DropdownColumnNumberMatch
    {
        public DropdownColumnNumberMatch()
        {
            RFQ_Number = "Unset";
        }

        public string RFQ_Number { get; set; }
    }

Thank you kind sir. So to add another it would simply be....

 public class DropdownColumnNumberMatch
    {
        public DropdownColumnNumberMatch()
        {
            RFQ_Number = "Unset";
            AnotherValue = "Unset";
        }

        public string RFQ_Number { get; set; }
        public string AnotherValue  { get; set; }
    }

yes exactly, constructor is one place to set default values to public properties.

FYI:  This would actually result in an endless loop:

public string RFQ_Number { get { return RFQ_Number; } ...
