C# Question

C# syntax to initialize custom class/objects through constructor params in array?

I have a class with minimum 4 variables and I have made a constructor for the class so that I can initialize it with

MyClass testobj = new MyClass(1234,56789,"test text", "something else", "foo");


Works fine.

Then I have an array of these, that I need to parse in a loop, so I would like to get some static data into this array.

My approach was:

MyClass[] testobjlist = new MyClass
{
new MyClass(1001,1234,"Text 1", "abcdefghijklm", "ding"),
new MyClass(1002,2345,"Text xx", "bla bla", "dong"),
new MyClass(1003,8653,"Text yy", "blah blah even more", "bamm!")
}


but somehow this gives me a weird error about me needing an extra } ???

I dunno if I should mention this, but I use it for webpages using Razor-engine 2. But I think this is an ordinary C# question?

My workaround is currently to initialize the array with a size, then adding the elements one by one through index, but I would rather prefere the above solution as I might have to move the items up and down in order when testing and I have a lot more than 3 in the real data.

Wondering what I am missing in the above code...?

Answer

Try adding square brackets after new MyClass and a semi-colon at the end

    MyClass[] testobjlist = new MyClass[] 
        {
         new MyClass(1001,1234,"Text 1", "abcdefghijklm", "ding"),
         new MyClass(1002,2345,"Text xx", "bla bla", "dong"),
         new MyClass(1003,8653,"Text yy", "blah blah even more", "bamm!")
        };
