    void x::set(int value) { my_x = value; }

    @antisocial:Its the parameter passed to the setter, so you use it to set your variables.

    So if I have

    int x
    {
        get { return _x; }
        set { _x = value }
    }

    And did thing.x = 123 value would be 123.

    IMHO, the VB.NET syntax is it easier to comprehend.

    Private _Prop2 As String = "Empty"
    Property Prop2 As String
        Get
            Return _Prop2
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As String)
            _Prop2 = value
        End Set
    End Property

    In C#

    class TimePeriod
    {
        private double seconds;
    
        public double Hours
        {
            get { return seconds / 3600; }
            set { seconds = value * 3600; }
        }
    }

    @DeathByVisualStudio: Stop being an anti-social jerk.  There's nothing wrong with people asking for help.
