] {
	String^ get(int index);

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

StringCollection accepts null as a valid value and allows duplicate elements.

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.

Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation; setting the property is also an O(1) operation.
