Public Class Example

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

      ' 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.
