C# | Check if StringDictionary is synchronized (thread safe)

  • Last Updated : 01 Feb, 2019

StringDictionary.IsSynchronized property is used to get a value indicating whether access to the StringDictionary is synchronized (thread-safe).

Syntax:

public virtual bool IsSynchronized { get; }

Return Value: This method returns True if access to the StringDictionary is synchronized (thread safe), otherwise it returns False.

Example:




// C# code to check if StringDictionary
// is synchronized (thread safe)
using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Specialized;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void Main()
    {
  
        // Creating a StringDictionary named myDict
        StringDictionary myDict = new StringDictionary();
  
        // Adding key and value into the StringDictionary
        myDict.Add("A", "Apple");
        myDict.Add("B", "Banana");
        myDict.Add("C", "Cat");
        myDict.Add("D", "Dog");
        myDict.Add("E", "Elephant");
  
        // Checking if StringDictionary
        // is synchronized (thread safe)
        Console.WriteLine(myDict.IsSynchronized);
    }
}

Output:

False

Note:

  • Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.
  • A StringDictionary instance is not synchronized. Derived classes can provide a synchronized version of the StringDictionary using the SyncRoot property.
