public static bool IsArray(
	Object VarName
)

Required. Object variable.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
Returns a Boolean value indicating whether a variable points to an array.

IsArray returns True if the variable points to an array; otherwise, it returns False. IsArray is especially useful with objects that might contain arrays.

This example uses the IsArray function to check if several variables refer to an array.

Dim firstArray(4), secondArray(3) As Integer 
Dim thisString As String = "Test" 
Dim arrayCheck As Boolean
arrayCheck = IsArray(firstArray)
arrayCheck = IsArray(secondArray)
arrayCheck = IsArray(thisString)
' The first two calls to IsArray return True; the third returns False.
