C# 3.0: Object Initializers

Posted by dariosantarelli on July 20, 2007

 In C# 3.0, creating an object instance and initializing it is now possible by using the new “object initializers” . Here an example:

class Contact 
 public string Name; 
 public readonly Location location = new Location(); 


Contact myContact = new Contact 
  Name = "Dario", 
  Location = { Address="myAddress", City = "MyCity" } 

P.S.: This feature is NOT available in VB9 because it doesn’t support read-only properties/fields initialization.
