The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: UI. 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).

The following example generates ten random integers and uses the Console::WriteLine(Boolean) method to indicate whether they are even.

using namespace System;

void main()
   // Assign 10 random integers to an array.
   Random^ rnd = gcnew Random();
   array<Int32>^ numbers = gcnew array<Int32>(10); 
   for (int ctr = 0; ctr <= numbers->GetUpperBound(0); ctr++)
      numbers[ctr] = rnd->Next();

   // Determine whether the numbers are even or odd. 
   for each (Int32 number in numbers) {
      bool even = (number % 2 == 0);
      Console::WriteLine("Is {0} even:", number);
