GetLowerBound() Method is used to find the index of the first element of the specified dimension in the array.
public int GetLowerBound (int dimension);
Here, dimension is a zero-based dimension of the array whose lower bound needs to be determined.
Return Value: The return type of this method is System.Int32. This method returns the index of the first element of the specified dimension in the array.
Exception: This method will give IndexOutOfRangeException if the value of dimension is less than zero, or equal or greater than Rank.
- GetLowerBound(0) returns the starting index of the first dimension of the array, and GetLowerBound(Rank – 1) returns the starting index of the last dimension of the array.
- The GetLowerBound method always returns a value that indicates the index of the lower bound of the array, even if the array is empty.
- This method is an O(1) operation.
