Remarks

The value passed to Index is an integer that is an index to an object in its collection. The value of Index can also be a string value that equates to an object in the collection. The exact value that is accepted by Item, though, depends upon the collection and its implementation.

The Item method throws a ArgumentException exception if the collection cannot find the object that corresponds to the index value.
