4.12: Invoice Class

(from C# 2012 How to Program)

Create a class called Invoice that a hardware store might use to represent
an invoice for an item sold at the store. An Invoice should include four pieces of information as
either instance variables or automatic properties — a part number (type string), a part description
(type string), a quantity of the item being purchased (type int) and a price per item (decimal).
Your class should have a constructor that initializes the four values. Provide a property with a get
and set accessor for any instance variables. For the Quantity and PricePerItem properties, if the
value passed to the set accessor is negative, the value of the instance variable should be left unchanged.
Also, provide a method named GetInvoiceAmount that calculates the invoice amount (i.e.,
multiplies the quantity by the price per item), then returns the amount as a decimal value. Write a
test app named InvoiceTest that demonstrates class Invoice’s capabilities.
