Object-oriented Programming in C#
Data Access, Properties, and Methods
Passing structs as value parameters

On this page we repeat the example from the previous page - but now on a struct instead of a class.

There are no surprises when we pass struct values as value parameters

/user/normark/oop-csharp-1/sources/c-sharp/method-parameters/by-value/struct/date.csThe struct Date and the method DayDifference with a value parameter. This program is explained

The exact similar setup as on the previous page.

/user/normark/oop-csharp-1/sources/c-sharp/method-parameters/by-value/struct/person.csThe class Person which calls DayDifference on dateOfBirth. This program is explained

/user/normark/oop-csharp-1/sources/c-sharp/method-parameters/by-value/struct/Client.csA client of Person and Date which reveal the consequences. This program is explained

/user/normark/oop-csharp-1/sources/c-sharp/method-parameters/by-value/struct/outputClient program output.

Go to exercisePassing struct values as ref parameters
There is a good fit between use of value types and call-by-value parameter passing
