Gets a value indicating whether the ICollection<T> is read-only.
Assemblies: System.Collections (in System.Collections.dll)
mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
A collection that is read-only does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the collection is created.
A collection that is read-only is simply a collection with a wrapper that prevents modifying the collection; therefore, if changes are made to the underlying collection, the read-only collection reflects those changes.
Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.
