Ordering Rules

Cause

An element within a C# code file is out of order within regard to access level, in relation to other elements in the code.

Rule Description

A violation of this rule occurs when the code elements within a file do not follow a standard ordering scheme based on access level.

To comply with this rule, adjacent elements of the same type must be positioned in the following order by access level:

protected internal

protected

private

Complying with a standard ordering scheme based on access level can increase the readability and maintainability of the file and make it easier to identify the public interface that is being exposed from a class.
