Array.GetValue Method (Int32)

Gets the value at the specified position in the one-dimensional Array. The index is specified as a 32-bit integer.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
<SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute> _
Public Function GetValue ( _
    index As Integer _
) As Object
[SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute]
public Object GetValue(
    int index
)

Parameters

  • index
    Type: System.Int32
    A 32-bit integer that represents the position of the Array element to get.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
The value at the specified position in the one-dimensional Array.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

The current Array does not have exactly one dimension.

IndexOutOfRangeException

index is outside the range of valid indexes for the current Array.

Remarks

The GetLowerBound and GetUpperBound methods can determine whether the value of index is out of bounds.

This method is an O(1) operation.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to set and get a specific value in a one-dimensional or multidimensional array.


Public Class Example

   Public Shared Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)

      ' Creates and initializes a one-dimensional array.
      Dim myArr1(4) As [String]

      ' Sets the element at index 3.
      myArr1.SetValue("three", 3)
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("[3]:   {0}", myArr1.GetValue(3)) & vbCrLf


      ' Creates and initializes a two-dimensional array.
      Dim myArr2(5, 5) As [String]

      ' Sets the element at index 1,3.
      myArr2.SetValue("one-three", 1, 3)
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("[1,3]:   {0}", myArr2.GetValue(1, 3)) & vbCrLf


      ' Creates and initializes a three-dimensional array.
      Dim myArr3(5, 5, 5) As [String]

      ' Sets the element at index 1,2,3.

      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("[1,2,3]:   {0}", myArr3.GetValue(1, 2, 3)) & vbCrLf


      ' Creates and initializes a seven-dimensional array.
