ArrayList.FixedSize Method (IList)

 

Returns an IList wrapper with a fixed size.

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

public static IList FixedSize(
	IList list
)

Parameters

list
Type: System.Collections.IList

The IList to wrap.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.IList

An IList wrapper with a fixed size.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

list is null.

This wrapper can be used to prevent additions to and deletions from the original IList. The elements can still be modified or replaced.

A collection with a fixed size is simply a collection with a wrapper that prevents adding and removing elements; therefore, if changes are made to the underlying collection, including the addition or removal of elements, the fixed-size collection reflects those changes.

This method is an O(1) operation.
