BitArray.Or(BitArray) BitArray.Or(BitArray) BitArray.Or(BitArray) BitArray.Or(BitArray) Method

Definition

Performs the bitwise OR operation between the elements of the current BitArray object and the corresponding elements in the specified array. The current BitArray object will be modified to store the result of the bitwise OR operation.

public:
 System::Collections::BitArray ^ Or(System::Collections::BitArray ^ value);
public System.Collections.BitArray Or (System.Collections.BitArray value);
member this.Or : System.Collections.BitArray -> System.Collections.BitArray
Public Function Or (value As BitArray) As BitArray

Parameters

value
BitArray BitArray BitArray BitArray

The array with which to perform the bitwise OR operation.

Returns

An array containing the result of the bitwise OR operation, which is a reference to the current BitArray object.

Exceptions

value and the current BitArray do not have the same number of elements.

Examples

The following code example shows how to perform the OR operation between two BitArray objects.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myList, int myWidth );
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes two BitArrays of the same size.
   BitArray^ myBA1 = gcnew BitArray( 4 );
   BitArray^ myBA2 = gcnew BitArray( 4 );
   myBA1[ 0 ] = false;
   myBA1[ 1 ] = false;
   myBA1[ 2 ] = true;
   myBA1[ 3 ] = true;
   myBA2[ 0 ] = false;
   myBA2[ 1 ] = true;
   myBA2[ 2 ] = false;
   myBA2[ 3 ] = true;
   
   // Performs a bitwise OR operation between BitArray instances of the same size.
   Console::WriteLine( "Initial values" );
   Console::Write( "myBA1:" );
   PrintValues( myBA1, 8 );
   Console::Write( "myBA2:" );
   PrintValues( myBA2, 8 );
   Console::WriteLine();
   Console::WriteLine( "Result" );
   Console::Write( "OR:" );
   PrintValues( myBA1->Or( myBA2 ), 8 );
   Console::WriteLine();
   Console::WriteLine( "After OR" );
   Console::Write( "myBA1:" );
   PrintValues( myBA1, 8 );
   Console::Write( "myBA2:" );
   PrintValues( myBA2, 8 );
   Console::WriteLine();
   
   // Performing OR between BitArray instances of different sizes returns an exception.
   try
   {
      BitArray^ myBA3 = gcnew BitArray( 8 );
      myBA3[ 0 ] = false;
      myBA3[ 1 ] = false;
      myBA3[ 2 ] = false;

      myBA3[ 4 ] = true;
      myBA3[ 5 ] = true;
      myBA3[ 6 ] = true;
      myBA3[ 7 ] = true;
      myBA1->Or( myBA3 );
   }
   catch ( Exception^ myException ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Exception: {0}", myException );
   }

}

{
   int i = myWidth;
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myList->GetEnumerator();

   Console::WriteLine();

Remarks

The bitwise OR operation returns true if one or both operands are true, and returns false if both operands are false.

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