A property is imported as an indexer (default indexed property in Visual Basic) if the property has arguments and if the name of the property or one of its accessors matches the name specified by the DefaultMemberAttribute. If the DefaultMemberAttribute is not present on the containing type, then the type does not have an indexer. The C# compiler emits the DefaultMemberAttribute on any type containing an indexer. In C# it is an error to manually attribute a type with the DefaultMemberAttribute if the type also declares an indexer.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
