ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

The ArrayList is read-only.

-or-

The ArrayList has a fixed size.

ArrayList accepts a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) as a valid value and allows duplicate elements.

If Count already equals Capacity, the capacity of the ArrayList is increased by automatically reallocating the internal array, and the existing elements are copied to the new array before the new element is added.

If Count is less than Capacity, this method is an O(1) operation. If the capacity needs to be increased to accommodate the new element, this method becomes an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

The following code example shows how to add elements to the ArrayList.
