BitVector32.Item Property (Int32)

Gets or sets the state of the bit flag indicated by the specified mask.

Namespace:  System.Collections.Specialized
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public bool this[
	int bit
] { get; set; }


Type: System.Int32
A mask that indicates the bit to get or set.

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the specified bit flag is on (1); otherwise, false.

The Item [Section] property is the indexer for a BitVector32 that is set up as sections, and the Item [int] property is the indexer for a BitVector32 that is set up as bit flags.

Using this property on a BitVector32 that is set up as sections might cause unexpected results.

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.
