- Property: A property, in some object-oriented programming languages, is a special sort of class member, intermediate between a field and a method. Properties are read and written like fields, but property reads and writes are translated to get and set method calls. The field-like syntax is said to be easier to read and write than lots of method calls, yet the interposition of method calls allows for data validation, active updating, or read-only 'fields'. That is, properties are intermediate between member code and member data of the class, and properties provide a higher level of encapsulation than public fields.
