C# – Calling constructor from other constructor in same class

c++constructor

I have a class with 2 constructors:

public class Lens
{
    public Lens(string parameter1)
    {
        //blabla
    }

    public Lens(string parameter1, string parameter2)
    {
       // want to call constructor with 1 param here..
    }
}

I want to call the first constructor from the 2nd one. Is this possible in C#?

Best Solution

Append :this(required params) at the end of the constructor to do 'constructor chaining'

public Test( bool a, int b, string c )
    : this( a, b )
{
    this.m_C = c;
}
public Test( bool a, int b, float d )
    : this( a, b )
{
    this.m_D = d;
}
private Test( bool a, int b )
{
    this.m_A = a;
    this.m_B = b;
}
