List<T>.IList.Item Property

Gets or sets the element at the specified index.

Namespace:  System.Collections.Generic
Assemblies:   mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
  System.Collections (in System.Collections.dll)

Object IList.this[
	int index
] { get; set; }

Parameters

index
Type: System.Int32

The zero-based index of the element to get or set.

Type: System.Object
The element at the specified index.

Implements

IList.Item

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

index is not a valid index in the IList.

ArgumentException

The property is set and value is of a type that is not assignable to the IList.

The C# language uses the this keyword to define the indexers instead of implementing the IList.Item property. Visual Basic implements IList.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.
