Definition

Gets the number of dimensions in an array.

public:
 virtual int GetArrayRank();
public virtual int GetArrayRank ();
abstract member GetArrayRank : unit -> int
override this.GetArrayRank : unit -> int
Public Overridable Function GetArrayRank () As Integer

Returns

An integer that contains the number of dimensions in the current type.

Implements

Exceptions

The functionality of this method is unsupported in the base class and must be implemented in a derived class instead.

Examples

The following example displays the number of dimensions in an array.

using namespace System;
int main()
{
   try
   {
      array<Int32, 3>^myArray = gcnew array<Int32,3>(3,4,5);
      Type^ myType = myArray->GetType();
      Console::WriteLine( "myArray has {0} dimensions.", myType->GetArrayRank() );
   }
   catch ( NotSupportedException^ e ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "NotSupportedException raised." );
      Console::WriteLine( "Source: {0}", e->Source );
      Console::WriteLine( "Message: {0}", e->Message );
   }
   catch ( Exception^ e ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Exception raised." );
      Console::WriteLine( "Source: {0}", e->Source );
      Console::WriteLine( "Message: {0}", e->Message );
   }

}
