Hi David,
I'm writing up my response to your question as a simple article, and with your permission, I'd like to include an extract from your question in that:

David C# Hobbyist. wrote:
As a self taught ameture in c#, I have never found a reason to implement a struct instead of a class.

 

Since I am self taught (No formal education) I would like to know what advantage would be gained by using a struct in lieu of a class? More importantly why when and where would it benefit my programs?


If you agree, I can tidy up the spelling, and either credit you or leave it anonymous - whichever you prefer - but I think it would help the "flow" of the article to explain why it exists.

If you don't agree for whatever reason (or none!), that's no problem either, I just won't reference you and will come up with a different introduction! Laugh | :laugh:

Please do reply whichever way you decide - but if you don't I will of course assume you are refusing permission and not reference you in any way.
