Well, kind of :) I have a collection that I want to access in C# with an indexer, the only problem is that the collection is written in VB.NET as part of a library which I need to consume and would be foolhardy to try and rewrite in C#.
It’s just a mixture of attributes and keywords - but gets me from having to call
Just a stylistic approach on my end to keep the readability of my C# consumer as high as possible. This is basically what I used:
Imports System.Reflection ... <DefaultMember("Item")> _ Public Class MyCollection Inherits System.Collections.CollectionBase Public Sub Add(ByVal NewObj As MyClass) List.Add(NewObj) End Sub ... Default Public Overloads ReadOnly Property Item(ByVal Index As Int32) _ As MyClass Get Return(CType(List.Item(Index), MyClass) End Get End Property Default Public Overloads ReadOnly Property Item(ByVal Key As String) _ As MyClass Get Return(GetByKey(Key)) End Get End Property ... End Class
I don’t know if the Default on the properties are required, but this worked for me. So I’m not messing with it :) Hope this can help someone else out there.
