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

T this[
	int index
] { get; set; }


Type: System.Int32

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

Property Value

Type: T

The element at the specified index.

Exception Condition

index is not a valid index in the IList<T>.


The property is set and the IList<T> is read-only.

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

The C# language uses the 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.
