C# | Set all bits in the BitArray to the specified value
The BitArray class manages a compact array of bit values, which are represented as Booleans, where true indicates that the bit is on i.e, 1 and false indicates the bit is off i.e, 0. This class is contained in System.Collections namespace.
BitArray.SetAll(Boolean) method is used to set all bits in the BitArray to the specified value.
- The BitArray class is a collection class in which the capacity is always the same as the count.
- Elements are added to a BitArray by increasing the Length property.
- Elements are deleted by decreasing the Length property.
- Elements in this collection can be accessed using an integer index. Indexes in this collection are zero-based.
public void SetAll (bool value);
Here, value is the Boolean value to assign to all bits.
Note: This method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
Below programs illustrate the use of BitArray.SetAll(Boolean) method:
Initially the bits are as : False False False False False Finally the bits are as : True True True True True
Initially the bits are as : False True True False True Finally the bits are as : False False False False False
