Array Overview

An array has the following properties:

  • An array can be Single-Dimensional or Multidimensional
  • The number of dimensions and the length of each dimension are established when the array instance is created. These values can't be changed during the lifetime of the instance.
  • Arrays are zero indexed: an array with n elements is indexed from 0 to n-1.
  • Array elements can be of any type, including an array type.
