List<'T>.IList.Item Property (Int32)

 

Gets or sets the element at the specified index.

Namespace:   System.Collections.Generic
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

private abstract Item : 
        index:int -> Object with get, set
private override Item : 
        index:int -> Object with get, set

Parameters

index
Type: System.Int32

The zero-based index of the element to get or set.

Property Value

Type: System.Object

The element at the specified index.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

index is not a valid index in the IList.

ArgumentException

The property is set and value is of a type that is not assignable to the IList.

The C# language uses the this keyword to define the indexers instead of implementing the IList.Item property. Visual Basic implements IList.Item as a default property, which provides the same indexing functionality.

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