C# | Check if the StringCollection is read-only

StringCollection class is a new addition to the .NET Framework class library that represents a collection of strings. StringCollection class is defined in the System.Collections.Specialized namespace.
StringCollection.IsReadOnly property is used to get a value indicating whether the StringCollection is read-only or not.

Syntax:

public bool IsReadOnly { get; }

Return Value: This property always returns false.

Note:

  • A collection that is read-only does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the collection is created.
  • Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.

Example:

filter_none

        String[] myArr = new String[] { "A", "B", "C", "D", "E" };
  
        // Copying the elements of a string
        // array to the end of the StringCollection.
        myCol.AddRange(myArr);
  
        // checking if StringCollection is
        // read-only
        Console.WriteLine(myCol.IsReadOnly);
    }
