Hi Guys!!!

whats difference between Auto-Implemented Properties and manual properties in c#?

for Example:
Manual Properties:

private int uno;
        public int Uno
            get { return uno; }
            set { uno = value; }

Auto Implemented Prop:

public string UserLeaveCount { get; set; }

Not much. Auto implemented properties are simply syntactic shorthand for the compiler. If you look at the assembly using a tool like ILSpy, you'll see that an auto implemented property actually gets converted to property + backing field at compile time.[^][^]

The only real-world difference is that a manual property can do things with the value before it is assigned or returned. An auto property just sets or returns the value.

thats fine jim, but i have a doubt about "there is no instance variable and how is it store and returned values?"

where does it say that? BTW, if you're going to ask more questions, amend your original one or ask a fresh one. questions in the comments section tend to get overlooked.
