c#: Lazy is not constrained to static contexts, instance field initialisers are – via: Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/11/03

Lazy<T> is not constrained to static contexts.

Instance field initialisers cannot use instance references (but can use static references) as they run outside of the constructor.Though there are arguments for instance field initialisers too., I think this is a good reason to initialise fields inside the constructor: there you do have access to instance references (but should not call virtual instance methods or properties) which leads to another reason: consistency as field initialisers run in the opposite hierarchy order as constructors (incidentally causing this virtual method restriction).

Boy, that was a long sentence (:
