Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true, if access to the Stack is synchronized (thread safe); otherwise, false. The default is false.

To guarantee the thread safety of the Stack, all operations must be done through the wrapper returned by the Synchronized method.

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 during the entire enumeration.

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

The following example shows how to synchronize a Stack, determine if a Stack is synchronized, and use a synchronized Stack.
