BitVector32.Item Property (BitVector32.Section)
Gets or sets the value stored in the specified BitVector32.Section.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
'Declaration Public Property Item ( _ section As BitVector32.Section _ ) As Integer
- Type: System.Collections.Specialized.BitVector32.Section
A BitVector32.Section that contains the value to get or set.
A BitVector32.Section is a window into the BitVector32 and is composed of the smallest number of consecutive bits that can contain the maximum value specified in CreateSection. For example, a section with a maximum value of 1 is composed of only one bit, whereas a section with a maximum value of 5 is composed of three bits. You can create a BitVector32.Section with a maximum value of 1 to serve as a Boolean, thereby allowing you to store integers and Booleans in the same BitVector32.
The C# language uses the this keyword to define the indexers instead of implementing the Item property. Visual Basic implements Item as a default property, which provides the same indexing functionality.
Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation; setting the property is also an O(1) operation.
