Property Value

This property always returns false.




HybridDictionary implements the IsReadOnly property because it is required by the System.Collections.IDictionary interface.

A collection that is read-only does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the collection is created.

A collection that is read-only is simply a collection with a wrapper that prevents modifying the collection; therefore, if changes are made to the underlying collection, the read-only collection reflects those changes.
