BitVector32::Section Structure

 

Represents a section of the vector that can contain an integer number.

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

public value struct Section

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyMask

Gets a mask that isolates this section within the BitVector32.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyOffset

Gets the offset of this section from the start of the BitVector32.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object^)

Determines whether the specified object is the same as the current BitVector32::Section object.(Overrides ValueType::Equals(Object^).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(BitVector32::Section)

Determines whether the specified BitVector32::Section object is the same as the current BitVector32::Section object.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as a hash function for the current BitVector32::Section, suitable for hashing algorithms and data structures, such as a hash table.(Overrides ValueType::GetHashCode().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current BitVector32::Section.(Overrides ValueType::ToString().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodSystem_CAPS_staticToString(BitVector32::Section)

Returns a string that represents the specified BitVector32::Section.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticEquality(BitVector32::Section, BitVector32::Section)

Determines whether two specified BitVector32::Section objects are equal.

System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticInequality(BitVector32::Section, BitVector32::Section)

Determines whether two BitVector32::Section objects have different values.

Use CreateSection to define a new section. A BitVector32::Section is a window into the BitVector32 and is composed of the smallest number of consecutive bits that can contain the maximum value specified in CreateSection. For example, a section with a maximum value of 1 is composed of only one bit, whereas a section with a maximum value of 5 is composed of three bits. You can create a BitVector32::Section with a maximum value of 1 to serve as a Boolean, thereby allowing you to store integers and Booleans in the same BitVector32.

The following code example uses a BitVector32 as a collection of sections.

#using <system.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections::Specialized;

int main()
{
   // Creates and initializes a BitVector32.
   BitVector32 myBV(0);

   // Creates four sections in the BitVector32 with maximum values 6, 3, 1, and 15.
   // mySect3, which uses exactly one bit, can also be used as a bit flag.
   BitVector32::Section mySect1 = BitVector32::CreateSection( 6 );
   BitVector32::Section mySect2 = BitVector32::CreateSection( 3, mySect1 );
   BitVector32::Section mySect3 = BitVector32::CreateSection( 1, mySect2 );
   BitVector32::Section mySect4 = BitVector32::CreateSection( 15, mySect3 );

   // Displays the values of the sections.
   Console::WriteLine( "Initial values:" );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect1: {0}", myBV[ mySect1 ] );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect2: {0}", myBV[ mySect2 ] );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect3: {0}", myBV[ mySect3 ] );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect4: {0}", myBV[ mySect4 ] );

   // Sets each section to a new value and displays the value of the BitVector32 at each step.
   Console::WriteLine( "Changing the values of each section:" );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tInitial:    \t {0}", myBV );
   myBV[ mySect1 ] = 5;
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect1 = 5:\t {0}", myBV );
   myBV[ mySect2 ] = 3;
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect2 = 3:\t {0}", myBV );
   myBV[ mySect3 ] = 1;
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect3 = 1:\t {0}", myBV );
   myBV[ mySect4 ] = 9;
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect4 = 9:\t {0}", myBV );

   // Displays the values of the sections.
   Console::WriteLine( "New values:" );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect1: {0}", myBV[ mySect1 ] );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect2: {0}", myBV[ mySect2 ] );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect3: {0}", myBV[ mySect3 ] );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tmySect4: {0}", myBV[ mySect4 ] );
}
