OOP naming conventions

Updated: 02 May 2023

Names of Method members

Methods are the means of taking action and therefore method names should be verbs or verb phrases.

public class String {
    public int CompareTo(...);
    public string[] Split(...);
    public string Trim();

Names of Property members

Properties refer to data and as such should be given noun, noun phrase or adjective names.

Collection property names can be plural, followed by “List”, “Collection” etc.

Issers, Hassers, Canners

Use the affirmative e.g. CanMutate rather than CantMutate
