Gets the current element in the collection.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
After an enumerator is created or after the Reset method is called, the MoveNext method must be called to advance the enumerator to the first element of the collection before reading the value of the property; otherwise, is undefined.
An enumerator remains valid as long as the collection remains unchanged. If changes are made to the collection, such as adding, modifying, or deleting elements, the enumerator is irrecoverably invalidated and the next call to MoveNext or Reset throws an InvalidOperationException. If the collection is modified between MoveNext and , returns the element that it is set to, even if the enumerator is already invalidated.
The following code example demonstrates the implementation of the IEnumerator interfaces for a custom collection. In this example, is not explicitly called, but it is implemented to support the use of foreach (for each in Visual Basic). This code example is part of a larger example for the IEnumerator interface.
' When you implement IEnumerable, you must also implement IEnumerator. Public Class PeopleEnum Implements IEnumerator Public _people() As Person ' Enumerators are positioned before the first element ' until the first MoveNext() call. Dim position As Integer = -1 Public Sub New(ByVal list() As Person) _people = list End Sub Public Function MoveNext() As Boolean Implements IEnumerator.MoveNext position = position + 1 Return (position < _people.Length) End Function Public Sub Reset() Implements IEnumerator.Reset position = -1 End Sub Public ReadOnly Property Current() As Object Implements IEnumerator.Current Get Try Return _people(position) Catch ex As IndexOutOfRangeException Throw New InvalidOperationException() End Try End Get End Property End Class
