StringCollection.IList.Remove(Object) Method


Removes the first occurrence of a specific object from the StringCollection.

 virtual void System.Collections.IList.Remove(System::Object ^ value) = System::Collections::IList::Remove;
void IList.Remove (object value);
Sub Remove (value As Object) Implements IList.Remove



The Object to remove from the StringCollection. The value can be null.



The StringCollection is read-only.


The StringCollection has a fixed size.


If the StringCollection does not contain the specified object, the StringCollection remains unchanged. No exception is thrown.

In collections of contiguous elements, such as lists, the elements that follow the removed element move up to occupy the vacated spot. If the collection is indexed, the indexes of the elements that are moved are also updated. This behavior does not apply to collections where elements are conceptually grouped into buckets, such as a hash table.

This method determines equality by calling Object.Equals.

This method performs a linear search; therefore, this method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
