The .Length property returns the total number of elements in the array, including all dimensions of the array.


int myLength = myArray.Length;

myArray.Length returns an int that represents the number of elements in myArray.


The following example initializes an array, then prints out the number of elements it contains:

using System;
public class Example
public static void Main(string[] args)
int[] myArray = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4};
Console.WriteLine(myArray.Length); // Output: 5
