BitArray.Set(Int32, Boolean) BitArray.Set(Int32, Boolean) BitArray.Set(Int32, Boolean) BitArray.Set(Int32, Boolean) Method

Definition

Sets the bit at a specific position in the BitArray to the specified value.

public:
 void Set(int index, bool value);
public void Set (int index, bool value);
member this.Set : int * bool -> unit
Public Sub Set (index As Integer, value As Boolean)

Parameters

index
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The zero-based index of the bit to set.

value
Boolean Boolean Boolean Boolean

The Boolean value to assign to the bit.

Exceptions

index is less than zero.

-or-

index is greater than or equal to the number of elements in the BitArray.

Examples

The following code example shows how to set and get specific elements in a BitArray.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintIndexAndValues( IEnumerable^ myCol );
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a BitArray.
   BitArray^ myBA = gcnew BitArray( 5 );
   
   // Displays the properties and values of the BitArray.
   Console::WriteLine( "myBA values:" );
   PrintIndexAndValues( myBA );
   
   // Sets all the elements to true.
   myBA->SetAll( true );
   
   // Displays the properties and values of the BitArray.
   Console::WriteLine( "After setting all elements to true," );
   PrintIndexAndValues( myBA );
   
   // Sets the last index to false.
   myBA->Set( myBA->Count - 1, false );
   
   // Displays the properties and values of the BitArray.
   Console::WriteLine( "After setting the last element to false," );
   PrintIndexAndValues( myBA );
   
   // Gets the value of the last two elements.
   Console::WriteLine( "The last two elements are: " );
   Console::WriteLine( "    at index {0} : {1}", myBA->Count - 2, myBA->Get( myBA->Count - 2 ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "    at index {0} : {1}", myBA->Count - 1, myBA->Get( myBA->Count - 1 ) );
}

void PrintIndexAndValues( IEnumerable^ myCol )
{
   int i = 0;
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myCol->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      Object^ obj = safe_cast<Object^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::WriteLine( "    [{0}]:    {1}", i++, obj );
   }

   Console::WriteLine();
}
