The zero-based index of the entry to locate in the collection.

Property Value

A String that contains the comma-separated list of values at the specified index of the collection.

Exception typeCondition


index is outside the valid range of indexes for the collection.

This property provides the ability to access a specific element in the collection by using the following syntax: myCollection[index].

This property cannot be set. To set the value at a specified index, use Item[GetKey(index)].

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 values at the specified index is an O(n) operation, where n is the number of values.
