BitArray.SetAll Method

Sets all bits in the BitArray to the specified value.

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

public void SetAll(
	bool value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Boolean

The Boolean value to assign to all bits.

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

The following code example shows how to set and get specific elements in a BitArray.

using System;
using System.Collections;
public class SamplesBitArray  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Creates and initializes a BitArray.
      BitArray myBA = new BitArray( 5 );

      // Displays the properties and values of the BitArray.
      Console.WriteLine( "myBA values:" );
      PrintIndexAndValues( myBA );

      // Sets all the elements to true.
      myBA.SetAll( true );

      // Displays the properties and values of the BitArray.
      Console.WriteLine( "After setting all elements to true," );
      PrintIndexAndValues( myBA );

      // Sets the last index to false.
      myBA.Set( myBA.Count - 1, false );

      // Displays the properties and values of the BitArray.
      Console.WriteLine( "After setting the last element to false," );
      PrintIndexAndValues( myBA );

      // Gets the value of the last two elements.
      Console.WriteLine( "The last two elements are: " );
      Console.WriteLine( "    at index {0} : {1}", myBA.Count - 2, myBA.Get( myBA.Count - 2 ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "    at index {0} : {1}", myBA.Count - 1, myBA.Get( myBA.Count - 1 ) );
   }


   public static void PrintIndexAndValues( IEnumerable myCol )  {
      int i = 0;
      foreach ( Object obj in myCol ) {
         Console.WriteLine( "    [{0}]:    {1}", i++, obj );
      }
      Console.WriteLine();
   }

}
/* 
This code produces the following output.

myBA values:
    [0]:    False
    [1]:    False
    [2]:    False
    [3]:    False
    [4]:    False

After setting all elements to true,
    [0]:    True
    [1]:    True
    [2]:    True
    [3]:    True
    [4]:    True

After setting the last element to false,
    [0]:    True
    [1]:    True
    [2]:    True
    [3]:    True
    [4]:    False

The last two elements are:
    at index 3 : True
    at index 4 : False
