trying to understand when I do call public Person this[int index] {get {
                return (Person)List[index];
  I'm just a little new trying to understand this concept..

class PersonCollection : CollectionBase
    {
        public void Add(Person person) {
            List.Add(person);

            }

        public void Insert(int index, Person person) {
            List.Insert(index, person);
        
        }

        public void Remove(Person person) {
            List.Remove(person);
            }

        public Person this[int index] {

            get {
                return (Person)List[index];
            
            }
            set
            {
                List[index] = value;
            
                }
        
            }    
    }

Open in new window


PersonCollection person = new PersonCollection();
            person.Add(new Person() {
            PersonID = 1,
            Name = "Yves",
            LName ="Guyon"
            
                });

            person.Add(new Person()
            {
                PersonID = 2,
                Name = "Steve",
                LName = "Smith"

            });

            person.Add(new Person()
            {
                PersonID = 3,
                Name = "Mark",
                LName = "Guyon"

            });

            person.Add(new Person()
            {
                PersonID = 3,
                Name = "Mark",
                LName = "Guyon"

            });

Assuming I understand what you are asking, you would access the indexer in this manner:

PersonCollection person = new PersonCollection();

...

Person p = person[0];

Open in new window


You can do this because you defined your indexer to accept integers as parameters.

the this[ ] construction converts your class into an indexable one.
It is expected that you reference an internal collection inside that class, in order to get the real data and return it in the 'get' block.
