This messed me up a bit… I have a view that has a property called “CompanyName”

public interface ICaptureCompanyDetailsView 
  string CompanyName { get; }

When my presenter was actually getting the company it was not getting stored as what I intended, because I had not implemented the “CompanyName” property on my actual view.

How did this compile?… It turns out that System.Windows.Forms.Control has a property called “CompanyName”. Hmm…

The temporary solution… C# Shadow Field! (Notice the ‘new’ keyword)

public new string CompanyName 
  get { return uxCompanyNameTextBox.Text; }
