C# Language Assignment


Example

var a = new List<int>();
var b = a;
a.Add(5);
Console.WriteLine(a.Count); // prints 1 
Console.WriteLine(b.Count); // prints 1 as well

Assigning to a variable of a List<int> does not create a copy of the List<int>. Instead, it copies the reference to the List<int>. We call types that behave this way reference types.
