I have one-dimensional and two-dimensional arrays to convert to ArrayList instead. What would be the equivalent code for:

    Private _mySmallArray(10) As Single
    Public Property MySmallArray As Single()
        Get
            Return _mySmallArray
        End Get
        Set(ByVal Value As Single())
            _mySmallArray = Value
        End Set
    End Property

    Private _myBigArray(10, 10) As Single
    Public Property MyBigArray() As Single(,)
        Get
            Return _myBigArray
        End Get
        Set(ByVal Value As Single(,))
            _myBigArray = Value
        End Set
    End Property

That way, I can still do things like:

 MySmallArray(3) = 3.33
 MyBigArray(4,5) = 4.5

Why are you trying to convert to an Arraylist? It looks like you are making pretty good use of the regular arrays, is there a reason for wanting to switch?

For the single array you can switch by doing

Private _myArrayList As Arraylist
Protected Property alSmallArray As ArrayList
   Get
      If _myArrayList Is Nothing Then
         _myArrayList = New ArrayList()
      End If
      Return _myArrayList
   End Get
   Set(ByVal Value As ArrayList)
      _myArrayList = Value
   End Set
End Property 'alSmallArray

alSmallArray.Item(3) = 3.33

Not sure how you would even make ArrayList work for a 2 Dimensional Array.
