Remarks

Use the GetEnumerator method to get an enumerator that can be iterated through linearly to access each item in the collection. To access the item at the current position in the enumerator, use the IEnumerator.Current property. Use the IEnumerator.MoveNext method to move to the next item in the collection. To move the enumerator to its initial position, use the IEnumerator.Reset method.

Note

When you initially get the enumerator or use the IEnumerator.Reset method to move the enumerator to the first item in the collection, you must call the IEnumerator.MoveNext method. Otherwise, the item represented by the IEnumerator.Current property is undefined.
