Iodine extends the Java language to allow the definition of true properties that can be accessed like fields using the . syntax, invoking optional getter or setter code. In addition, Methods named get* and set* imported from external libraries will automatically be made accessible using property syntax as well.

Defining custom properties uses a syntax similar to C#, but with the __get and __set keywords.

String Name {
    __get {
        return fName;
    __set {
        fName = value;

int Count  { __get { return fCount; } }

Bool Test { __get; __set; }

Properties can be accessed using regular . syntax:

myObject.Name = "Hello";
if (myObject.Test) {
