How to Check if the ArrayList is read-only in C# ?

There are times when you would use the read-only wrapper in order to prevent modifying the ArrayList. We use the ArrayList.ReadOnly method to create such collection.

When doing so , you might want to check if the ArrayList is Read-only or not.

How to Check if the ArrayList is read-only in C# ?

Use the IsReadOnly property defined in the ArrayList object to check this.

using System;
using System.Collections;

namespace ACConsoleApp1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            ArrayList movies = new ArrayList(5);
           
            movies.Add("Robo 2.0");
            movies.Add("Kabali");

            // Create a new ReadOnly ArrayLisy
            var readOnlyArrayLisy = ArrayList.ReadOnly(movies);
            // Check if the ArrayList is a ReadOnly
            Console.WriteLine(readOnlyArrayLisy.IsReadOnly);
            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}
