Examples

The following example demonstrates how to implement the IsFixedSize property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the IDictionary class.

public:
    virtual property bool IsFixedSize
    {
        bool get()
        {
            return false;
        }
    }
public bool IsFixedSize { get { return false; } }
Public ReadOnly Property IsFixedSize() As Boolean Implements IDictionary.IsFixedSize
    Get
        Return False
    End Get
End Property

Remarks

A collection with a fixed size does not allow the addition or removal of elements after the collection is created, but does allow the modification of existing elements.

A collection with a fixed size is simply a collection with a wrapper that prevents adding and removing elements; therefore, if changes are made to the underlying collection, including the addition or removal of elements, the fixed-size collection reflects those changes.
