Remarks

The GetLowerBound and GetUpperBound methods can determine whether the value of index is out of bounds.

This method is an O(1) operation.

Note

If SetValue is used to assign null to an element of an array of value types, all fields of the element are initialized to zero. The value of the element is not a null reference, and cannot be found by searching for a null reference.

Remarks

The number of elements in indices must equal the number of dimensions in the Array. All elements in the indices array must collectively specify the position of the desired element in the multidimensional Array.

Remarks

The number of elements in indices must equal the number of dimensions in the Array. All elements in the indices array must collectively specify the position of the desired element in the multidimensional Array.

The GetLowerBound and GetUpperBound methods can determine whether any of the values in the indices array is out of bounds.

For more information about conversions, see Convert.

This method is an O(1) operation.

Note

If SetValue is used to assign null to an element of an array of value types, all fields of the element are initialized to zero. The value of the element is not a null reference, and cannot be found by searching for a null reference.

See Also

Sets a value to the element at the specified position in the two-dimensional Array. The indexes are specified as 32-bit integers.

public:

public void SetValue (object value, int index1, int index2);
member this.SetValue : obj * int * int -> unit
Public Sub SetValue (value As Object, index1 As Integer, index2 As Integer)
Parameters
value
Object Object Object Object

The new value for the specified element.

index1
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

A 32-bit integer that represents the first-dimension index of the Array element to set.

index2
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

A 32-bit integer that represents the second-dimension index of the Array element to set.

Exceptions

The current Array does not have exactly two dimensions.

value cannot be cast to the element type of the current Array.

Either index1 or index2 is outside the range of valid indexes for the corresponding dimension of the current Array.

Remarks

The GetLowerBound and GetUpperBound methods can determine whether any of the indexes is out of bounds.

For more information about conversions, see Convert.

This method is an O(1) operation.

Note

If SetValue is used to assign null to an element of an array of value types, all fields of the element are initialized to zero. The value of the element is not a null reference, and cannot be found by searching for a null reference.

Sets a value to the element at the specified position in the three-dimensional Array. The indexes are specified as 64-bit integers.

Parameters
value
Object Object Object Object

The new value for the specified element.

index1
Int64 Int64 Int64 Int64

A 64-bit integer that represents the first-dimension index of the Array element to set.

index2
Int64 Int64 Int64 Int64

A 64-bit integer that represents the second-dimension index of the Array element to set.

index3
Int64 Int64 Int64 Int64

A 64-bit integer that represents the third-dimension index of the Array element to set.

Exceptions

The current Array does not have exactly three dimensions.

value cannot be cast to the element type of the current Array.

index1 or index2 or index3 is outside the range of valid indexes for the corresponding dimension of the current Array.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to set and get a specific value in a one-dimensional or multidimensional array.

   // Creates and initializes a one-dimensional array.
   array<String^>^myArr1 = gcnew array<String^>(5);
   
   // Sets the element at index 3.
   myArr1->SetValue( "three", 3 );
   Console::WriteLine( "[3]:   {0}", myArr1->GetValue( 3 ) );
   
   // Creates and initializes a two-dimensional array.
   array<String^, 2>^myArr2 = gcnew array<String^,2>(5,5);
   
   // Sets the element at index 1,3.
   myArr2->SetValue( "one-three", 1, 3 );
   Console::WriteLine( "[1,3]:   {0}", myArr2->GetValue( 1, 3 ) );
   
   // Creates and initializes a three-dimensional array.
   array<String^, 3>^myArr3 = gcnew array<String^,3>(5,5,5);

   myArr3->SetValue( "one-two-three", 1, 2, 3 );
   Console::WriteLine( "[1,2,3]:   {0}", myArr3->GetValue( 1, 2, 3 ) );
   
   // Creates and initializes a seven-dimensional array.
   array<String^, 7>^myArr7 = gcnew array<String^,7>(5,5,5,5,5,5,5);
   
   // Sets the element at index 1,2,3,0,1,2,3.
