Join Gerry O'Brien for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the Base Class Library (BCL), part of Learning C# (2014).
Within the Microsoft .NET framework, there is a component known…as the base class library, and this is essentially a…library of classes, interfaces, and value types that you can…use to provide common functionality in all of your .NET applications.…The base class library is divided into…namespaces to make locating that functionality easier.…We've seen examples of using some of that functionality from the…using directives that exist at the top of our Program.cs file.…We bring in namespaces such as…System, and System.Collections.Generic,…System.Linq, System.Text, and System.Threading.Tasks.…
.…And within these namespaces exist classes that perform…certain functionality that are related to the namespaces.…As an example, let's take a look at what…exists in the System.Text namespace for functionality or for classes.…Now in order to do that, one of the…simplest ways is to bring up our Object Browser window.…If we click on the View menu, we can see that there's…a window called Object Browser, and the shortcut key combination is Ctrl+W+J.…
