Predefined Datatypes in C#

Here we will see the data types available in C#. Before examining the data types in C#, first we will try to understand the C# have two categories of data types.

Value types
Reference types

Value type data type is that which stores the value directly in the memory. Its just like int, float and double. But reference […]


Class inheritance is not just about reusing the classes at many locations, it also adds enormous flexibility to the way in which one can program his application.

The object-oriented programming approach focuses on objects as the basis for application building. Objects are instances of classes, which contain a description of related data and procedures. The Visual […]

Standard Template Library

The STL (Standard Template Library) was originally a third-party library from HP and later SGI, before its incorporation into the C++ standard. The standard does not refer to it as “STL”, as it is merely a part of the standard library, but many people still use that term to distinguish it from the rest of […]

Application Structure

Let’s begin by looking at the structure of a C# application. Every C# application contains certain elements. The application begins with the hierarchical levels, listed here in order of appearance.


Every application begins with a namespace that has the same name as the project. Of course, you can change the namespace to anything you like in […]

Structured programming only deals with procedures (functions) and variables. The basic idea behind the Object Oriented Programming is that it deals with the objects. In real life everything is an object and every object has properties and functionality.

As everything in the computer world is derived from the real life, like online books resemble […]


If we say that a particular programming language is Object Oriented then it means, the programming language must have the facility to define classes in it. A class is an expanded concept of a data structure i.e instead of containing data only, it can contain both data and functions (operations on data).
What is a Class?
A […]
