Private _FieldValue As <some type>

Public Property Something As <some type>
Return _FieldValue
End Get
Private Set
_FieldValue = value
End Set
End Property

design and development so please let me know if this doe snot make sense...

The reasopn why I have these read only porperties is becasue these
particular properties are not set programatically - they are as a result
of a calualtion of two other properties as shown below...

public readonly property PSFLiveFactored() as decimal
return PSFLiveFactored = PSFLive * 1.5
end get
end property

I have one readonly property that is derived from an SQL Stored procedure
(called when the object is instantiated) which selects a row from a view.
This particular view includes some calculated rows - one of which I want a
few of my read only properties to contain - as opposed to the way I am
setting them above. Since I cannot (and do not want anyone to) set this
property in code (hence a readonly property), how do I actaully set an
initial value for a read only property?

Would I have to call a private method in the "Get" area that would then
retrieve the data from the DB and use that returned value to set the
Thanks, Brad
