Returns a read-only IList(T) wrapper for the current collection.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The following example demonstrates the method. A List(T) of strings with a capacity of 4 is created, because the ultimate size of the list is known to be exactly 4. The list is populated with four strings, and the method is used to get a read-only IList(T) generic interface implementation that wraps the original list.
An element of the original list is set to "Coelophysis" using the Item property (the indexer in C#), and the contents of the read-only list are displayed again to demonstrate that it is just a wrapper for the original list.
