List.System.Collections.Generic.ICollection<T>.IsReadOnly Property 

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets a value indicating whether the ICollection is read-only.

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

bool ICollection<TKey>.IsReadOnly { get; 
J# supports the use of explicit interface implementations, but not the declaration of new ones.
JScript supports the use of explicit interface implementations, but not the declarations of new ones.

Property Value

true if the ICollection is read-only; otherwise, false. In the default implementation of List, this property always returns false.

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.
