Is ArrayList is a type safe collection?

Posted By :Shweta     Posted Date :February 08, 2012    Points :40   Category :.NET Framework 
No, ArrayList is not a type safe collection because it allows you to add a any object. That means if you have one arrayList class object you can add in Integer, string, boolean, double etc value into one ArrayList class object.

for eg

ArrayList arr = new ArrayList();
arr("One");
arr.Add(1);
arr.Add(true);

What is type safe?

  
Type safety is about increasing the opportunities for the compiler to detect your coding errors. If you use interfaces instead of delegates the compiler will have more opportunities to detect your coding errors. (More...)

Why .NET delegates are called type safe?

  
.NET delegates are type safe. If you will attempt to pass a delegate, a method that does not "match the pattern", you will receive a compile time error "Method does not match delegate pattern!". (More...)

Which is the design pattern that is type-safe and still extensible on runtime?

  
Decorator Pattern design pattern that is type-safe and still extensible on runtime (More...)

What are safe controls, and what type of information, is placed in that element in a SharePoint web.config file?

  
When you deploy a WebPart to SharePoint, you must first make it as a safe control to use within SharePoint in the web.config file. Entries made in the safe controls element of SharePoint are encountered by the SharePointHandler object and will be loaded in the SharePoint environment properly, those not will not be loaded and will throw an error.
In the generic safe control entry (this is general, there could be more), there is generally the Assembly name, the namespace, the public key token numeric, the typename, and the safe declaration (whether it is safe or not). There are other optional elements. (More...)

What is Garbage Collection in .Net? Garbage collection process?

  
The process of transitively tracing through all pointers to actively used objects in order to locate all objects that can be referenced, and then arranging to reuse any heap memory that was not found during this trace. The common language runtime garbage collector also compacts the memory that is in use to reduce the working space needed for the heap. (More...)

Difference between type constructor and instance constructor? What is static constructor, when it will be fired? And what is its use?

  
(Class constructor method is also known as type constructor or type initializer)
Instance constructor is executed when a new instance of type is created and the class constructor is executed after the type is loaded and before any one of the type members is accessed. (It will get executed only 1st time, when we call any static methods/fields in the same class.) Class constructors are used for static field initialization. Only one class constructor per type is permitted, and it cannot use the vararg (variable argument) calling convention. (More...)

What is the difference between Finalize and Dispose (Garbage collection)

  
Class instances often encapsulate control over resources that are not managed by the runtime, such as window handles (HWND), database connections, and so on. Therefore, you should provide both an explicit and an implicit way to free those resources. Provide implicit control by implementing the protected Finalize Method on an object (destructor syntax in C# and the Managed Extensions for C++). The garbage collector calls this method at some point after there are no longer any valid references to the object.
In some cases, you might want to provide programmers using an object with the ability to explicitly release these external resources before the garbage collector frees the object. If an external resource is scarce or expensive, better performance can be achieved if the programmer explicitly releases resources when they are no longer being used. To provide explicit control, implement the Dispose method provided by the IDisposable Interface. The consumer of the object should call this method when it is done using the object. Dispose can be called even if other references to the object are alive.


Note that even when you provide explicit control by way of Dispose, you should provide implicit cleanup using the Finalize method. Finalize provides a backup to prevent resources from permanently leaking if the programmer fails to call Dispose. (More...)

What is type system unification?

  
The goal of type system unification is to bridge the gap between value types and reference types that exists in most languages. For example, a Stack class can provide Push and Pop methods that take and return object values.

public class Stack
{
public object Pop() {...}
public void Push(object o) {...}
}
Because C# has a unified type system, the Stack class can be used with elements of any type, including value types like int. (More...)

What are the requirements to create a CLR based user-defined type?

  
CLR must be enabled for the instance and A class created with a CLR-compatible language. (More...)

What is return type of Executenonquery() ?

  
int will be returned when you call ExecuteNonQuery() in ADO.NET (More...)
