Variables.Contains(Object) Variables.Contains(Object) Variables.Contains(Object) Variables.Contains(Object) Method

Definition

Returns a Boolean that indicates whether the items in the collection can be accessed by using indexing without throwing an exception.

public:
 bool Contains(System::Object ^ index);
public bool Contains (object index);
member this.Contains : obj -> bool
Public Function Contains (index As Object) As Boolean

Parameters

index
Object Object Object Object

The name, ID, description, or index of the variable to locate in the collection.

Returns

A Boolean that indicates whether the collection can be accessed by using indexing. A value of true indicates that the collection can be accessed by using the syntax Variables[index].If the Contains(Object) method returns false, this property will throw an exception. In C#, this property is the indexer for the Variables class.

Examples

The following code example adds a variable to the package. The code example uses various methods to locate the variable and print out its name, value, and namespace.
