An instance of the ReadOnlyCollection(Of T) generic class is always read-only. 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. See Collection(Of T) for a modifiable version of this class.

Notes to Implementers

This base class is provided to make it easier for implementers to create a generic read-only custom collection. Implementers are encouraged to extend this base class instead of creating their own.

The following code example demonstrates several members of the ReadOnlyCollection(Of T) class. The code example creates a List(Of T) of strings and adds four dinosaur names to it. The code example then wraps the list in a ReadOnlyCollection(Of T).

After demonstrating the Count, Contains, Item, and IList.IndexOf members, the code example shows that the ReadOnlyCollection(Of T) is just a wrapper for the original List(Of T) by adding a new item to the List(Of T) and displaying the contents of the ReadOnlyCollection(Of T).

Finally, the code example creates an array larger than the collection and uses the CopyTo method to insert the elements of the collection into the middle of the array.

      Dim dinosaurs As New List(Of String)

      dinosaurs.Add("Deinonychus")
      dinosaurs.Add("Compsognathus")

      Dim readOnlyDinosaurs As _
          New ReadOnlyCollection(Of String)(dinosaurs)

      For Each dinosaur As String In readOnlyDinosaurs
         outputBlock.Text &= dinosaur & vbCrLf

          readOnlyDinosaurs.Count) & vbCrLf

      Next

      Dim dinoArray(readOnlyDinosaurs.Count + 1) As String
      readOnlyDinosaurs.CopyTo(dinoArray, 1)

      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(vbLf & "Copied array has {0} elements:", _
          dinoArray.Length) & vbCrLf
      For Each dinosaur As String In dinoArray
         outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("""{0}""", dinosaur) & vbCrLf

' This code example produces the following output:
'
'Tyrannosaurus
'Amargasaurus
'Deinonychus
'Compsognathus
'
'Count: 4
'
'Contains("Deinonychus"): True
'
'readOnlyDinosaurs(3): Compsognathus
'
'IndexOf("Compsognathus"): 3

'Insert into the wrapped List:
'Insert(2, "Oviraptor")
'
'Tyrannosaurus
'Amargasaurus
'Oviraptor
'Deinonychus
'Compsognathus

'Copied array has 7 elements:

Public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

A ReadOnlyCollection(Of T) can support multiple readers concurrently, as long as the collection is not modified. Even so, enumerating through a collection is intrinsically not a thread-safe procedure. To guarantee thread safety during enumeration, you can lock the collection during the entire enumeration. To allow the collection to be accessed by multiple threads for reading and writing, you must implement your own synchronization.
