The IList is read-only.

Implementations of this method can vary in how they handle the ICollection::Count and the capacity of a collection. Typically, the count is set to zero, and references to other objects from elements of the collection are also released. The capacity can be set to zero or a default value, or it can remain unchanged.

The following example demonstrates the implementation of the IList interface to create a simple list, fixed-size list. This code is part of a larger example for the IList interface.
