    Default Re: How to use Get and Set methods

    These methods are used just as their definitions describe - to get and set the value of a variable. This is typical when the scope of the variable is hidden, for instance through access modifiers using encapsulation. If you don't know what the words are in bold, I highly recommend doing an internet search for them.
