C# | Check if ListDictionary is read-only

  • Last Updated : 01 Feb, 2019

ListDictionary.IsReadOnly property is used to get a value indicating whether the ListDictionary is read-only or not.

Syntax:

public bool IsReadOnly { get; }

Return Value : This property always returns false.

Example:




// C# code to check if ListDictionary is read-only
using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Specialized;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void Main()
    {
  
        // Creating a ListDictionary named myDict
        ListDictionary myDict = new ListDictionary();
  
        myDict.Add("Australia", "Canberra");
        myDict.Add("Belgium", "Brussels");
        myDict.Add("Netherlands", "Amsterdam");
        myDict.Add("China", "Beijing");
        myDict.Add("Russia", "Moscow");
        myDict.Add("India", "New Delhi");
  
        // Checking if ListDictionary is read-only
        Console.WriteLine(myDict.IsReadOnly);
    }
}

Output:

False

Note:

  • A collection that is read-only does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the collection is created.
  • A collection that is read-only is simply a collection with a wrapper that prevents modifying the collection. Therefore, if changes are made to the underlying collection, the read-only collection reflects those changes.
  • Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.
