I just need some full answer of internal and public, I already know the basic idea behind both of them… but really what makes internal any different from public!!! I know internal will make the member or entity only accessible within the package itself (.dll or .exe) and not from any external package. but other than that what are the other common uses of internal, and what really makes it used instead of public.
You needed to know, what are the differences between
public classes in C#?
Well here is how I see it
internal is visible only in an assembly.
What happens when you declare a member as
Public? is that you will have the ability to access from other DLLs.
But, if you needed to declare a member to be
public just inside your class library, you can declare it as
as I said,
internal members are visible only inside the current assembly.
Try to use
internal only when you want to protect the internal APIs, you have the ability to expose several overloads of a method, by example.
public int Add(int x, int y)
public int Add(int x,int y, int z)
Both of them requires an internal method
internal int Add(int numbers)
After that you can put a lot of affectation by a method, but, to help the programmer to connect to the method correctly, it is necessary to “protect” it using some false appearance methods, by example (The execution method with the parameter set may have an arbitrary limit of the values).
Warning: using the reflection, each and every method is callable regardless of its seen. Considered as Another “hack” to control/gain access to internally hidden APIs.
And remember, if you used properties marked as internal for DataBinding in WPF, you will receive a BindingExpression path error.
That’s why you should make be
public in order to work properly if the DataBinding takes place within the same assembly or not in both cases this will work
