public class ComponentCollection : ReadOnlyCollectionBase

The ComponentCollection type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodComponentCollectionInitializes a new instance of the ComponentCollection class using the specified array of components.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyCountGets the number of elements contained in the ReadOnlyCollectionBase instance. (Inherited from ReadOnlyCollectionBase.)
Protected propertyInnerListGets the list of elements contained in the ReadOnlyCollectionBase instance. (Inherited from ReadOnlyCollectionBase.)
Public propertyItem[Int32]Gets the Component in the collection at the specified collection index.
Public propertyItem[String]Gets any component in the collection matching the specified name.
Top

  NameDescription
Public methodCopyToCopies the entire collection to an array, starting writing at the specified array index.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetEnumeratorReturns an enumerator that iterates through the ReadOnlyCollectionBase instance. (Inherited from ReadOnlyCollectionBase.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodICollection.CopyToCopies the entire ReadOnlyCollectionBase to a compatible one-dimensional Array, starting at the specified index of the target array. (Inherited from ReadOnlyCollectionBase.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate propertyICollection.IsSynchronizedGets a value indicating whether access to a ReadOnlyCollectionBase object is synchronized (thread safe). (Inherited from ReadOnlyCollectionBase.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate propertyICollection.SyncRootGets an object that can be used to synchronize access to a ReadOnlyCollectionBase object. (Inherited from ReadOnlyCollectionBase.)

This collection inherits from ReadOnlyCollectionBase. The only way to add IComponent objects to this collection is to use the class constructor.

This collection provides two indexer properties, a string indexer and an integer indexer. The string indexer property returns a component in the collection by name if the Site property of a component in the collection is not null and the Name property of the Site property of the component matches the specified string. The integer indexer property returns the IComponent at the specified collection index. The CopyTo method copies the contents of the collection to a specified array, beginning writing to the array at the specified index.

NoteNote

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: Synchronization. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

The following code example demonstrates how to use a ComponentCollection to enumerate a collection of custom BookComponent objects.

	//This code segment implements the IContainer interface.  The code segment  
	//containing the implementation of ISite and IComponent can be found in the documentation 
	//for those interfaces. 
	
	//Implement the LibraryContainer using the IContainer interface. 
	
	class LibraryContainer : IContainer
	{
		private ArrayList m_bookList;

		public LibraryContainer()
		{
			m_bookList = new ArrayList();
		}

		public virtual void Add(IComponent book)
		{
			//The book will be added without creation of the ISite object.
			m_bookList.Add(book);
		}

		public virtual void Add(IComponent book, string ISNDNNum)
		{
			for(int i =0; i < m_bookList.Count; ++i)
			{
				IComponent curObj = (IComponent)m_bookList[i];
				if(curObj.Site != null)
				{
					if(curObj.Site.Name.Equals(ISNDNNum))
						throw new SystemException("The ISBN number already exists in the container"); 
				}
			}

			ISBNSite data = new ISBNSite(this, book);
			data.Name = ISNDNNum;
			book.Site = data;
			m_bookList.Add(book);
		}

		public virtual void Remove(IComponent book)
		{
			for(int i =0; i < m_bookList.Count; ++i)
			{				
				if(book.Equals(m_bookList[i]))
				{
					m_bookList.RemoveAt(i);
						break;
				}
			}
		}

		public ComponentCollection Components
		{
			get
			{
				IComponent[] datalist = new BookComponent[m_bookList.Count];
				m_bookList.CopyTo(datalist);
				return new ComponentCollection(datalist);
			}
		}

		public virtual void Dispose()
		{	
			for(int i =0; i < m_bookList.Count; ++i)
			{
				IComponent curObj = (IComponent)m_bookList[i];
				curObj.Dispose();
			}
			
			m_bookList.Clear();
		}

		static void Main(string[] args)
		{
			LibraryContainer cntrExmpl = new LibraryContainer();

			try
			{
				BookComponent book1 = new BookComponent("Wizard's First Rule", "Terry Gooodkind");
				cntrExmpl.Add(book1, "0812548051");
				BookComponent book2 = new BookComponent("Stone of Tears", "Terry Gooodkind");
				cntrExmpl.Add(book2, "0812548094");
				BookComponent book3 = new BookComponent("Blood of the Fold", "Terry Gooodkind");
				cntrExmpl.Add(book3, "0812551478");
				BookComponent book4 = new BookComponent("The Soul of the Fire", "Terry Gooodkind");
				//This will generate exception because the ISBN already exists in the container.
				cntrExmpl.Add(book4, "0812551478");
			}
			catch(SystemException e)
			{
				Console.WriteLine("Error description: " + e.Message);
			}

			ComponentCollection datalist =cntrExmpl.Components;
			IEnumerator denum = datalist.GetEnumerator();

			while(denum.MoveNext())
			{
				BookComponent cmp = (BookComponent)denum.Current;
				Console.WriteLine("Book Title: " + cmp.Title);
				Console.WriteLine("Book Author: " + cmp.Author);
				Console.WriteLine("Book ISBN: " + cmp.Site.Name);
			}
		}
