Here Mohammad Shaik provided a short tutorial with example, about Interface in C#.
What is an Interface in C#?
  1. An Interface is a way to achieve runtime polymorphism in C#.
  2. An Interface is a collection of properties and methods declarations.
  3. An Interface is a type declaration like a class or structure in C#; an Interface itself does not implement members.
  4. Interfaces are contract templates in which the contract members are declared.
Characteristics of an Interface
Interfaces cannot be initialized directly as they do not have a definition for members, they should be implemented by either a class or structure.

Interfaces can contain any of the following type members or a combination of these four member types.
  1. Property
  2. Method
  3. Event
  4. Indexer
An Interface can be declared as either public or internal inside a namespace and can’t have any other access modifiers. An Interface can have any access modifier when declared inside a class or structure.
Members of an Interface are public by default and can’t have other access modifiers.
A class implementing an Interface must implement all the members declared in the Interface and they must be marked as public in the Implicit implementation.
In the case of Explicit implementation, the Interface members can't have any access modifiers and they are private by default.
If the implementing class is signed as abstract then the members of the Interface can also be signed as abstract in the class.
Declaring Interfaces
Interfaces are declared using the interface keyword. It is similar to class declaration. Interface statements are public by default. Following is an example of an interface declaration:

public interface ITransactions
   // interface members
   void showTransaction();
   double getAmount();

The following example demonstrates implementation of the above interface:

using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace InterfaceApplication

   public interface ITransactions
      // interface members
      void showTransaction();
      double getAmount();
   public class Transaction : ITransactions
      private string tCode;
      private string date;
      private double amount;
      public Transaction()
         tCode = " ";
         date = " ";
         amount = 0.0;
      public Transaction(string code, string date, double amount)
         tCode = code;
         date = date;
         amount = amount;
      public double getAmount()
         return amount;
      public void showTransaction()
         Console.WriteLine("Transaction Code: {0}", tCode);
         Console.WriteLine("Transactin Date: {0}", date);
         Console.WriteLine("Transaction Amount: {0}", getAmount());


   class Tester
      static void Main(string[] args)
         Transaction objT1 = new Transaction("00124""7/11/2014", 77900.00);
         Transaction objT2 = new Transaction("00125""8/11/2014", 424900.00);
         objT1 .showTransaction();
         objT2 .showTransaction();

When the above code is compiled and executed, it produces the following result:

Transaction Code: 001
Transaction Date: 8/10/2012
Transaction Amount: 78900
Transaction Code: 002
Transaction Date: 9/10/2012
Transaction Amount: 451900

I hope this page will helps to learn Interfaces in C#. Thanks.
