public:
virtual property bool IsReadOnly {
	bool get () sealed;
}

Property Value

Type: System..::..Boolean
true if the Hashtable is read-only; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Implements

IDictionary..::..IsReadOnly

A collection that is read-only does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the collection is created.

A collection that is read-only is simply a collection with a wrapper that prevents modifying the collection; therefore, if changes are made to the underlying collection, the read-only collection reflects those changes.

Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.
