I'm making a Sudoku game.

The code below works perfectly but I want to name it other than "this".

I can access it now by making: this[x1,y1,s1]

What I have tried:

bool[,,] aVt = new bool[9, 9, 9];
bool this[int x, int y, int s]
            {
                get { return aVt[x, y, s]; }
                set
                {
                    if (value == false)
                    {
                        if (aVt[x, y, s])
                        {
                            progressMade = true;
                        }
                    }
                    aVt[x, y, s] = value;
                }
            }

Do you mean something like this (ehh, not this)?
public int[,,] PropertyName
{
    get
    {
        return aVt;
    }

    set
    {
        // ...
        aVt = value;
    }
}

can i use it like this: propertyName[x1,y1,s1]=true;?
and it does: aVt[x1,y1,s1]=true; and does my code above?

What happens when you TRY IT?

What does 'aVt[x1,y1,s1]=true' mean? An array with 3 integers (or bools) doesn't have a 'true' property by itself.
If you explain what it is you want to do, perhaps I can help you some more...

PS. You can change 'PropertyName' to a name you like.

I know I can change propertyName but I'm sorry I was almost sure that's not what I'm looking for and that's why I didn't try, I need to check if the new value to the bool in the three dimensional array is false and the existing value is true and set progress made in solving the Sudoku to true, in the solution you gave I cant check that, please see my code, I want an exact copy not named: "this".
I made it...

classaV aV=new classaV();

        class classaV
        {
            // Declare an array to store the data elements.
            bool[,,] aVt = new bool[9, 9, 9];

            // Define the indexer to allow client code to use [] notation.
            public bool this[int x, int y, int s]
            {
                get { return aVt[x, y, s]; }
                set
                {
                    if (value == false)
                    {
                        if (aVt[x, y, s])
                        {
                            progressMade = true;
                        }
                    }
                    aVt[x, y, s] = value;
                }
            }
        }

I see. You're using an indexer and you can't translate 'this' to a property because properties don't allow multiple arguments.
If you don't want to use your new class: to get the value just use: bool value = aVt[x, y, z]; and to set the value use e.g.: SetaVt(1, 2, 3, true);
C#
public void SetaVt(int x, int y, int z, bool value)
{
    if (value == false)
    {
        if (aVt[x, y, s])
        {
            progressMade = true;
        }
    }
    aVt[x, y, s] = value;
}
