ConcurrentQueue<T>.IsEmpty Property

Gets a value that indicates whether the ConcurrentQueue<T> is empty.

Namespace:  System.Collections.Concurrent
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public bool IsEmpty { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the ConcurrentQueue<T> is empty; otherwise, false.

For determining whether the collection contains any items, use of this property is recommended rather than retrieving the number of items from the Count property and comparing it to 0. However, as this collection is intended to be accessed concurrently, it may be the case that another thread will modify the collection after IsEmpty returns, thus invalidating the result.
