Examples

The following example shows how to add elements to the Queue, remove elements from the Queue, or view the element at the beginning of the Queue.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myCollection );
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a new Queue.
   Queue^ myQ = gcnew Queue;
   myQ->Enqueue( "The" );
   myQ->Enqueue( "quick" );
   myQ->Enqueue( "brown" );
   myQ->Enqueue( "fox" );
   
   // Displays the Queue.
   Console::Write( "Queue values:" );
   PrintValues( myQ );
   
   // Removes an element from the Queue.
   Console::WriteLine( "(Dequeue)\t{0}", myQ->Dequeue() );
   
   // Displays the Queue.
   Console::Write( "Queue values:" );
   PrintValues( myQ );
   
   // Removes another element from the Queue.
   Console::WriteLine( "(Dequeue)\t{0}", myQ->Dequeue() );
   
   // Displays the Queue.
   Console::Write( "Queue values:" );
   PrintValues( myQ );
   
   // Views the first element in the Queue but does not remove it.
   Console::WriteLine( "(Peek)   \t{0}", myQ->Peek() );
   
   // Displays the Queue.
   Console::Write( "Queue values:" );
   PrintValues( myQ );
}

void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myCollection )
{
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myCollection->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      Object^ obj = safe_cast<Object^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::Write( "    {0}", obj );
   }

   Console::WriteLine();
}

Remarks

The capacity of a Queue is the number of elements the Queue can hold. As elements are added to a Queue, the capacity is automatically increased as required through reallocation. The capacity can be decreased by calling TrimToSize.

The growth factor is the number by which the current capacity is multiplied when a greater capacity is required. The growth factor is determined when the Queue is constructed. The capacity of the Queue will always increase by a minimum value, regardless of the growth factor; a growth factor of 1.0 will not prevent the Queue from increasing in size.

If Count is less than the capacity of the internal array, this method is an O(1) operation. If the internal array needs to be reallocated to accommodate the new element, this method becomes an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
