What are the Partial Classes in C#

As we check our coding page in .net application we found that at the top after the namespaces there is a call that is partially defined in every web page. The question arrives in our mind that what is this Partial and why we use the class with partial access specifier. Why we not use the class as publicly or privately? Here we are to answer all these question. First we will get the partial class definition and its need.

Reference Type in C#

Reference type are important features of the C# language. They enable us to write complex and powerful application and effectively use the run-time framework. If we define the reference type variables in C# then the Reference type variables contain a reference to the data not the value. The value is stored in a separate memory area. for example in C# we used several reference type variables such as Classes, Structures, Array, Enumeration etc.

Boxing and Unboxing in C#

The two terms Boxing and Unboxing in C# are used when we need to convert one data type to other type. First we will discuss the Boxing. Boxing is the process of converting a Value type to the other Object type. When we use the Boxing of a value type to an objtct type the CLR wraps its value inside System.Object and stores it on the managed heap. In the term unboxing we perform reverse of boxing. In unboxing the value of an object type extracts and converted into value type. Boxing is an implicit process so we need not to write any code to box a value type. But in case of unboxing we need to do it explicitly,

Namespace in C#.Net

Definition: As we know that every piece of code in .Net exists inside a .Net Type. Generally we put the code inside the class. The namespace is a collection of these classes or types. Every type exists inside a namespace. Namespaces can organize all the different types in the class library. Without namespace, these types would be grouped into a single long and messy list. In .Net the System namespace is stocked with several hundred classes. Also many namespaces are exists inside the System namespace. There are many namespaces that are must while developing a .Net application.

C#.NET – Creating DLL to Hide Your Code

The DLL also called Dynamic Link Library is a file that can be used dynamically by other programs. We create the DLL mainly to hide our confidential code so that we can use the code everywhere but can not see the code. When we talk about the layers or 3 and above tier application we need to understand one thing that why we create layers in our project. We only show some part of code to everyone and hide the main coding part. The benefit is we can use this code but can not see this.

C# Switch Case Statement

As we know that we use If-Else statement when we have to perform any conditional bases operation. When the condition become true we execute the If block statements and when the condition is false we execute Else block. But sometimes there are a group of conditions where we have to perform one from the group. In this case we use Switch-Case statements. A Switch statement execute the case condition corresponding to the value of expression. First we will use the syntax of using Switch-Case Example. and Then we will use an example.
