    bool value
)

Parameters

  • index
    Type: System.Int32
    The zero-based index of the bit to set.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

index is less than zero.

-or-

index is greater than or equal to the number of elements in the BitArray.

Remarks

This method is an O(1) operation.

Examples

The following code example shows how to set and get specific elements in a BitArray.

      ' Creates and initializes a BitArray.
      Dim myBA As New BitArray(5)

      ' Displays the properties and values of the BitArray.
      outputBlock.Text &= "myBA values:" & vbCrLf
      PrintIndexAndValues(outputBlock, myBA)

      ' Sets all the elements to true.
      myBA.SetAll(True)

      ' Displays the properties and values of the BitArray.
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("After setting all elements to true,") & vbCrLf
      PrintIndexAndValues(outputBlock, myBA)

      ' Sets the last index to false.

      ' Displays the properties and values of the BitArray.
