Constructor is public method which is called automatically when object of class is created. It is created when you want to initilize class members of the class.Constructor of class is called single time in life cycle of the object.Constructor in static class can also be created and this is called "Private / Staic " constructor. We can not create object of static class because of that this constructor is called only single time when first time class name is used to use any member of same class. Every class has defult zero argument constuctor, but when we use constructor overloading then we have to write zero argument constrouctor too. Source:

Its is a member function in class which has the same name as the class name. There is no return type. It initializes the member variable as soon as the instance of the class in created. In the lifetime of a object only one constructor can be called. Source:

Constructor in C# are of two types:
=>Instance Constructor:It will be called automatically when the object is created
=>Static Constructor:It is not necessary to create a object.As soon as the compiler enters the Main() function the static constructor is called automatically.
