Hello Experts,

I'm working some tutorials learning C# and came across Automatic Properties.  Now, I'm not quite sure how they are supposed to work.
Main Class code
            myExample myEx = new myExample(); 
            int i = myEx.CurrentValue;


Open in new window

Class with private var code
    class myExample
        private int someVal = 38;
        public int CurrentValue
            get { return someVal; }
            set { someVal = value; }

Open in new window

When I run the code, I get 38 in the console.  But how do I turn the Class with private var code to an automatic property returning 38 to the console?
