OracleString.Item Property

Note: This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 1.1 of the .NET Framework.

Gets the single byte from the Value property located at the position indicated by the integer parameter, index. If index indicates a position beyond the end of the byte array, an exception is raised. This property is read-only.

[C#] In C#, this property is the indexer for the OracleString class.

[Visual Basic]
Public Default ReadOnly Property Item( _
   ByVal index As Integer _
) As Char
public char this[
 int index
] {get;}
public: __property __wchar_t get_Item(
 int index
returnValue = OracleStringObject.Item(index);
returnValue = OracleStringObject(index);

[JScript] In JScript, you can use the default indexed properties defined by a type, but you cannot explicitly define your own. However, specifying the expando attribute on a class automatically provides a default indexed property whose type is Object and whose index type is String.

Arguments [JScript]

The position of the byte to be retrieved.

Parameters [Visual Basic, C#, C++]

The position of the byte to be retrieved.

Property Value

The byte located at the position indicated by the integer parameter.


To avoid raising an exception, always check the IsNull property and the Length property before reading this.
