Get Offset(Int32) Method
Calculates the offset from the start of the collection using the given collection length.
public: int GetOffset(int length);
public int GetOffset (int length);
member this.GetOffset : int -> int
Public Function GetOffset (length As Integer) As Integer
The length of the collection that the Index will be used with. Must be a positive value.
For performance reasons, this method does not validate if
length or the returned value are negative. It also doesn't validate if the returned value is greater than
Collections are not expected to have a negative length/count. If this method's returned offset is negative and is then used to index a collection, the runtime will throw ArgumentOutOfRangeException, which will have the same effect as validation.
