	int index
] {
	Object^ get(int index);
	void set(int index, Object^ value);
}

Parameters

index
Type: System::Int32

The zero-based index of the element to get or set.

Property Value

Type: System::Object^

The element at the specified index.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

index is not a valid index in the IList.

NotSupportedException

The property is set and the IList is read-only.

This property provides the ability to access a specific element in the collection by using the following syntax: myCollection[index].

The C# language uses the keyword to define the indexers instead of implementing the Item property. Visual Basic implements Item as a default property, which provides the same indexing functionality.

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.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
