Quick question about thread locking in C#

Recommended Posts

Hello, Do you need to lock a simple type like an int, if two threads assign to it? or are the base types threadsafe?
int myInt;
lock(myInt)
{
	myInt = 0;
}



// Executing on some other thread somewhere...
myInt = someCounter;

Seems a little overkill.. Thanks,
