Private Constructors in C# / VB.NET

Use of Private Constructors in C# (.NET)

Here is an example of a Private Constructor

public class WicketCounter
    {
        //Private Constructor
        private WicketCounter() { }

        // No of Wickets
        public static int Wickets;
        // Public Method to Return the No of Wickets
        public static int WicketCount()
        {
            return ++Wickets;
        }

     
    }


The Class has a private constructor, a public static method and a static variable. The Method increments the Wicketcount (and hence the class itself is called wicketcounter) and the value is returned through Wickets var

WicketCounter.WicketCount();
            
            MessageBox.Show(WicketCounter.Wickets.ToString());


The declaration of private constructor prevents the creation of default constructor. Hence the class cannot be instantiated and doesn;t contain any instance fields or methods Digg Technorati Delicious StumbleUpon Reddit BlinkList Furl Mixx Facebook Google Bookmark Yahoo
