C# Copy Object


I have an object (please see code block below) which I want to make a copy of. However when I make a copy of my object and make a change to one the other object also changes.

I do not want to use serialisation either. Can someone please send me some code.

Thanks for any help,

public class OrderBlock
        public string BlockID { get; set; }
        public int NumFails { get; set; }
        public List<Orders> OrderList { get; set; }
        public List<Orders> OrderListFailed { get; set; }

    public class Orders
        public bool Failed { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string ID { get; set; }
        public string Side { get; set; }
        public double Amount { get; set; }
        public bool GoodOrder { get; set; }

Provide an example. What do you change and what other object also gets changed.

>>However when I make a copy of my object and make a change to one the other object also changes.

obj o = new obj();// some object based on a class
obj o2 = o;  // this is NOT making a copy, both o2 and o are the same object;

you need
obj o = new obj();
obj o2 = new obj();
//now copy the contents of o into o2 to make a copy
