In C++, the code ‘MyClass ht;’ creates an object ht on the stack frame. But in C#, this same code compiles, but gives a runtime error. Why

Platform: WinForms| Category: from MFC

MyClass ht; does not create any object. Instead, it creates a variable (a reference) of type MyClass, and sets its value to null. No object is created. To create an object, you need to explicitly call the class constructor with a new.

	MyClass  ht = new MyClass();

You can also use ht to refer to an instance of MyClass that has been created (with a new) at some other point in your code.

	MyClass  myClass = new MyClass();
	MyClass ht;
	ht = myClass; // both ht and myClass are references to the same object...
