IDictionary.IsReadOnly Property


Gets a value indicating whether the IDictionary object is read-only.

 property bool IsReadOnly { bool get(); };
public bool IsReadOnly { get; }
member this.IsReadOnly : bool
Public ReadOnly Property IsReadOnly As Boolean

Property Value

true if the IDictionary object is read-only; otherwise, false.


The following code example demonstrates how to implement the IsReadOnly property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the IDictionary class.

    property virtual bool IsReadOnly
        bool get()
            return false;
public bool IsReadOnly { get { return false; } }
Public ReadOnly Property IsReadOnly() As Boolean Implements IDictionary.IsReadOnly
        Return False
    End Get
End Property


A collection that is read-only does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the collection is created.
