"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do you what to know about static calss?
For example, you can use this code.
	public static class RepositoryClass
	{
		public static List<Account> Accounts;
	}
	public class Account
	{
		public string AccountName { get; set; }
	}

To use it you use the class name, no need to create an object of that type
MyAccountXXXX = RepositoryClass.Accounts...  (replace the dots with property, function or whatever it is you want)

You don't. There is no real use-case for a static class. Code reuse and testability speaks against it.

Take a look at the Repository pattern. And Implementing the Repository and Unit of Work Patterns in an ASP.NET MVC Application (9 of 10).

Why do you think, you need a static class in this case?

I completely agree to ste5an. It is not a good idea to use static classes here.

You may also consider a Singleton pattern.

I strongly disagree with the marked post as answer. It uses uninitialized members. It does not encapsulate the internals. Object lifetime is not clear.
AndyAinscowFreelance programmer / ConsultantCommented:
@Ste5an and Anarki.  Whether static class is suitable or not is irrelevant.  The asker wanted to know how to use a static class.  Admittedly the accepted comment only partially answers the question and even that in a poor way but it may well have been enough to help the asker.
