In this chapter, you will learn how to:
What properties are
The properties supported by the Managed Extensions for C++
How properties are implemented
Properties have been available in some programming languages—such as Microsoft Visual Basic—for some time, but the .NET Framework has added support for them into Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) so that they can easily be implemented in any .NET programming language. You’ll see in this chapter that properties can often lead to a more natural style of programming without sacrificing robustness or violating principles of object-oriented programming.
