The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Gets a value indicating whether the IDictionary object has a fixed size.

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

ReadOnly Property IsFixedSize As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the IDictionary object has a fixed size; otherwise, false.

A collection with a fixed size does not allow the addition or removal of elements after the collection is created, but does allow the modification of existing elements.

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.

The following code example demonstrates how to implement the IsFixedSize property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the IDictionary class.

Public ReadOnly Property IsFixedSize() As Boolean Implements IDictionary.IsFixedSize
    Get
        Return False
    End Get
End Property
