Validating code

You can write whatever validating code is appropriate before assigning the incoming value to a private instance variable or perhaps storing it in a privatedata structure of some other type.

In this case, the value is accepted and stored in the private instance variable named heightData if it is less than 84 (the height in inches of a person that is seven feet tall). If the incoming value is greaterthan 83, it is not accepted and instead is flagged as invalid by storing 0 in the private instance variable.

A read-only property

You can omit the code on the set side if you need a read-only property.

Little more to say about this

There isn't much more that I can say to explain this syntax other than to tell you to memorize it. The code in Listing 5 causes the fourth line of text shown in Figure 1 to be displayed on the black screen.

Call manipulator method and display results

In addition to making it possible to set and get property values, objects often provide other public interface methods of varying complexity that make itpossible to manipulate the data stored in the object in a variety of ways. In those cases, the using programmer needs access to good documentation thatexplains the behavior of such manipulator methods.

Returning to the Main method, Listing 7 calls a manipulator method named doubleHeight (belonging to the object of type TargetClass ) that is designed to double the value of the height property. Then Listing 7 accesses and displays the new value of the height property.

Listing 7 . Call manipulator method and display results.

obj.doubleHeight(); Console.WriteLine("double height: " + obj.height);

A manipulator method named doubleHeight

Listing 8 shows the manipulator method named doubleHeight that is defined in the class named TargetClass .

Listing 8 . A simple manipulator method named doubleHeight.

public void doubleHeight(){ heightData *= 2;}//end doubleHeight //--------------------------------------------------//}//end TargetClass

The method multiplies the current value in the private instance variable that is used to store the property named height by a factor of two, stores the modified value back into the same variable, and returns void .

The code in Listing 7 causes the fifth line of text shown in Figure 1 to be displayed.

Listing 8 also signals the end of the class named TargetClass .

Set and get the property with an invalid value

Returning once more to the Main method, Listing 9 attempts to set an invalid value into the property named height .

Listing 9 . Set and get the property named height with an invalid value.

obj.height = 100; Console.WriteLine("height: " + obj.height);

Then it retrieves and displays the value currently stored in that property.

As you saw in Listing 6 , when an attempt is made to set a value greater than 83 in the property, a value of 0 is set in the property to flag it as invalid.

The code in Listing 9 causes the last line of text in Figure 1 to be displayed on the black screen.

Pause until the user presses any key

The last statement in the Main method, shown in Listing 10 , causes the program to block and wait until the user presses a key. This causesthe black screen to remain on the desktop until the user is finished viewing it.

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
