List<T>.RemoveRange(Int32, Int32) List<T>.RemoveRange(Int32, Int32) List<T>.RemoveRange(Int32, Int32) List<T>.RemoveRange(Int32, Int32) Method

Definition

Removes a range of elements from the List<T>.

public:
 void RemoveRange(int index, int count);
public void RemoveRange (int index, int count);
member this.RemoveRange : int * int -> unit
Public Sub RemoveRange (index As Integer, count As Integer)
Parameters
index
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The zero-based starting index of the range of elements to remove.

count
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The number of elements to remove.

Exceptions

index and count do not denote a valid range of elements in the List<T>.

Examples

The following example demonstrates the RemoveRange method and various other methods of the List<T> class that act on ranges. After the list has been created and modified, the RemoveRange method is used to remove two elements from the list, beginning at index location 2.

    List<String^>^ dinosaurs = 
        gcnew List<String^>((IEnumerable<String^>^) input);

    Console::WriteLine("\nCapacity: {0}", dinosaurs->Capacity);

Remarks

The items are removed and all the elements following them in the List<T> have their indexes reduced by count.

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