It's been a little while since I've coded in C#...I can't remember if it's good practice (or legal) to call class methods or even reference other class properties inside of a class property (all methods and properties are within the same class)....Anyone?

Thanks.

You can definitely do it and it is up to you if you want to or not. I personally try and keep properties small since they are meant to be setters and getters.

I do too usually, but occasionally a setter entails more than just assigning a value -- I need to modify that value first. This usually occurs when I have a method whose purpose is to get or set something, so my inclination is to refactor that as a property -- at the expense of possibly adding a larger-than-usual amount of logic to the new property.

Thanks! :thumbsup:
