What are constructors in C#?

In C#, a constructor is a type of method that creates an instance of a class. It is automatically executed when an object of that class that has a constructor is created or instantiated. A constructor is also called an overload constructor. A constructor has the same name as the as the class or struct. Constructors also usually initialize the data members of the new object.

The benefit of having a constructor is that it guarantees that the object will go through a proper initialization before it is used. It also allows for pre-initializing of some of the class variables with values before the object is used.

Constructors can either be static or an instance. They also do not have any return type.
