Array.Initialize Array.Initialize Array.Initialize Array.Initialize Method


Initializes every element of the value-type Array by calling the default constructor of the value type.

 void Initialize();
public void Initialize ();
member this.Initialize : unit -> unit
Public Sub Initialize ()


This method is designed to help compilers support value-type arrays; most users do not need this method. It must not be used on reference-type arrays.

If the Array is not a value-type Array or if the value type does not have a default constructor, the Array is not modified.

The value-type Array can have any lower bound and any number of dimensions.

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is Length.


You can use this method only on value types that have constructors; however, value types that are native to C# do not have constructors.
