Property Value


true if the collection is read-only; otherwise, false. The default is false.



A read-only collection does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the collection is created.

A read-only collection is simply a collection with a wrapper that prevents modifying the collection. If changes are made to the underlying collection, the read-only collection reflects those changes.
