MatchCollection.Item Property

Gets an individual member of the collection.

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

Index into the Match collection.

Parameters [Visual Basic, C#, C++]

Index into the Match collection.

Property Value

The captured substring at position i in the collection.
