Building a C-Sharp Class

Physical Link: Building a C-Sharp Class


I have created this example of a C# class to demonstrate one way of creating a basic class cbject representing one employee.  This class could be used as a starting point for just about any object.

Take note that there are no business rules in this example.  It is of my opinion that you create a basic object first and create a business class second which extends the basic object.  In the business class you may put an EmployeeNumber generator, MaxLength controls on the fields, Phone number validation and other rules that may apply based on your business practices.  A business class will be demonstrated in a later blog.

You may also want to create a collection class.  A collection class or a manager class would manage a collection of objects with Add, Remove, Select, Sort type functions.  This too will be demonstrated in a later blog.
