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

JScript does not support generic types or methods.

Type Parameters


The type of the elements in the array segment.

ArraySegment(T) is a wrapper around an array that delimits a range of elements in that array. Multiple ArraySegment(T) instances can refer to the same original array and can overlap.

The Array property returns the entire original array, not a copy of the array; therefore, changes made to the array returned by the Array property are made to the original array.

The original array must be one-dimensional and must have zero-based indexing.

The following code example passes an ArraySegment(T) structure to a method.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

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