Properties - public & protected

Just to verify, i cannot use properties and have a public get and a protected
set, correct?

i assumed i could either define it twice with different scopes or set the
access visibility at the get/set level but neither is true. So i assume this
means i have to stop using properties and use the Java-style getX()/setX()
methods. But i wanted to verify before i start doing that

No, not in VS2002 & VS2003, but it will be available in VS2005.

Correct. A better alternative to to getX() and setX() might be to go
half-way:
Create a public read only property (only has a getter), and then a
protected setX.
The consumers of your class will still be able to take advantage of the
familiar property style for reading the value (which is all they can do
anyway).
