Array.IsReadOnly Array.IsReadOnly Array.IsReadOnly Array.IsReadOnly Property

Definition

Gets a value indicating whether the Array is read-only.

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

This property is always false for all arrays.

Implements

Remarks

Array implements the IsReadOnly property because it is required by the System.Collections.IList interface. An array that is read-only does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the array is created.

If you require a read-only collection, use a System.Collections class that implements the System.Collections.IList interface.

If you cast or convert an array to an IList interface object, the IList.IsReadOnly property returns false. However, if you cast or convert an array to a IList<T> interface, the IsReadOnly property returns true.

Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.
