Remarks

This method uses Array.Reverse to reverse the order of the elements, such that the element at ArrayList [i], where i is any index within the range, moves to ArrayList [j], where j equals index + index + count - i - 1.

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

Reverse(Int32, Int32) Reverse(Int32, Int32) Reverse(Int32, Int32) Reverse(Int32, Int32)

Reverses the order of the elements in the specified range.

public:
 virtual void Reverse(int index, int count);
public virtual void Reverse (int index, int count);
abstract member Reverse : int * int -> unit
override this.Reverse : int * int -> unit
Public Overridable Sub Reverse (index As Integer, count As Integer)

Parameters

index
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The zero-based starting index of the range to reverse.

count
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The number of elements in the range to reverse.

Exceptions

index and count do not denote a valid range of elements in the ArrayList.
