public:  
   C() : MyInt(99) {}  
  
   property int Property_Block {   // context-sensitive keyword  
      int get() { return MyInt; }  
   }  
};  
  
int main() {  
   int property = 0;               // variable name  
   C ^ MyC = gcnew C();  
   property = MyC->Property_Block;  
   System::Console::WriteLine(++property);  
}
