Learn how to override the ToString method on a C# object.
- [Instructor] In the last video,…we did some work in the Program.cs file,…which is part of the CharacterCommand project.…And all we really did here was to instantiate a character,…and then generate it.…When we ran this, we didn't really see anything,…and that's sort of unsatisfying…as you're developing a project.…It's really nice if you can see if everything is working…and see how things are coming along,…so why don't we go ahead and add some functionality…that will do that for us?…I mentioned in the last video that once you get things…fairly well squared away in the Program.cs file,…you're going to do most of your editing in the library.…
So with that in mind, let's switch…back over to Character.cs.…If you don't happen to have it open,…it should be over here in your Solution Explorer.…What we're going to do for this particular exercise…is we're going to generate a string version…of the Character class.…Every class in C# inherits from a base object.…The base object is where you get those extra properties…and methods that you didn't put into your program yourself,…
