    Can't Access the private member from base class

    Hello guys here i got a question about accessing the private member from base class here is my code

    Code:
    using System;
    class emp
    {
    private int x;
    
    public void getdata()
    {
    y=int.parse(Console.ReadLine());
    }
    public int setdata()
    {
    return y;
    }
    
    }
    class person:emp
    {
    int x;
    public void calculate()
    {
    x=base.setdata();
    Console.WriteLine(x);
    }
    }
    public static void Main()
    {
    emp e=new emp();
    person p=new person();
    e.getdata();
    p.calculate
    }
    The derived class function can't access the value of base class returned function.What is the problem

    Your code is broken on many levels...no compiler would touch that.

    Here's something that will work

    Code:
    using System;
    
    class emp
    {
        private int x;
    
        public void getdata()
        {
            x = Int32.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
        }
        public int setdata()
        {
            return x;
        }
    }
    
    class person : emp
    {    
        public void calculate()
        {
            Console.WriteLine(base.setdata());
        }
    }
    
    class MyMain
    {
        public static void Main()
        {
            person p=new person();
            p.getdata();
            p.calculate();
        }
    }

    i would also reccomend using get and set

    Code:
    class wutever
    {
        private int x;
        
        public int X
        {
            get
            {
                 return x
            }
            set
            {
                 x = value;
            }
        }
    }
    
    class Main
    {
         static void Main()
        {
            wutever w;
            w.X = 0;
            Console.Write(w.X);
            w.X = 16;
            Console.Write(w.X);
        }
    }
    sorry im in a rush ive just learnt get and set so i might be a bit off there
    New Function!!!!
