To prevent accidental modification of data by restricting direct access to variables and methods

In C# programming, what is the main characteristic of private class members?

They can only be accessed within the class and are hidden outside the class

It can only be changed by an object’s method and cannot be accessed outside the class

'Encapsulation' in object-oriented programming refers to which concept?

'Encapsulating' all the data that is member functions, variables, etc., within a class

'Protected Internal' access specifier in C# programming allows access to what parts of a program?

It allows access within the class or in derived classes as well as any location within the same assembly

Study Notes

Software Engineering

  • The primary focus of Software Engineering is to design, develop, test, and maintain software systems that are reliable, efficient, and meet the user's requirements.
  • The main components of Software Engineering are Software Quality Assurance (SQA), Software Project Management, and Software Development Process.

Objectives of Software Engineering

  • The primary goal of Software Engineering is to develop software systems that are correct, reliable, efficient, and maintainable.
  • Software Engineering is concerned with the development of software systems that meet the user's requirements.
  • One of the objectives of Software Engineering is to significantly improve Product Quality, Cost, and Time (PQCT).

Software Development Process

  • The Software Development Process involves designing, developing, testing, and maintaining software systems.

Software Quality Assurance (SQA)

  • Software Quality Assurance (SQA) ensures that the software system meets the user's requirements and is reliable, efficient, and maintainable.

Object-Oriented Programming (OOP)

  • The primary focus of Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) is to develop software systems that are modular, reusable, and easy to maintain.
  • A class abstraction in OOP involves defining a class that represents a concept or object with common attributes and methods.
  • The concept of Inheritance in OOP describes the idea of creating a new class based on an existing class, inheriting its attributes and methods.
  • The concept of Polymorphism in OOP involves the idea of having objects with a mix of some inherited methods and some unique to their own class.
  • Encapsulation in OOP involves bundling data and methods that operate on that data within a single unit, a class.
  • The purpose of encapsulation in OOP is to hide the implementation details of an object from the outside world and show only the necessary information.

Access Specifiers in C# Programming

  • In C# programming, private class members are accessible only within the same class.
  • The underscore symbol ('_') in Python is used for encapsulation, making the variable or method private.
  • The default visibility of data members and member functions in a class in C# programming is private.
  • Public members of a class in a program are accessible from anywhere in the program.
  • The main purpose of access specifiers in C# programming is to control access to members of a class.
  • Protected members of a class in C# programming are accessible within the same class and its derived classes.
  • An object's variable is considered private in object-oriented programming if it is not accessible from outside the object.
  • Encapsulation in object-oriented programming refers to the concept of bundling data and methods that operate on that data within a single unit, a class.
  • The 'Protected Internal' access specifier in C# programming allows access to members of a class from within the same class, derived classes, and classes in the same assembly.
