[<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Synchronization = true)>]
static member Synchronized : 
        list:SortedList -> SortedList

Parameters

list
Type: System.Collections.SortedList

The SortedList object to synchronize.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.SortedList

A synchronized (thread-safe) wrapper for the SortedList object.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

list is null.

To guarantee the thread safety of a SortedList object, all operations must be done through this wrapper only.

Enumerating through a collection is intrinsically not a thread-safe procedure. Even when a collection is synchronized, other threads can still modify the collection, which causes the enumerator to throw an exception. To guarantee thread safety during enumeration, you can either lock the collection during the entire enumeration or catch the exceptions resulting from changes made by other threads.

The following code example shows how to lock the collection using the SyncRoot property during the entire enumeration.

This method is an O(1) operation.

The following code example shows how to synchronize a SortedList object, determine whether a SortedList is synchronized, and use a synchronized SortedList.
