Examples

The following code example adds new elements to the StringCollection.

#using <System.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
using namespace System::Collections::Specialized;
void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myCol );
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a new StringCollection.
   StringCollection^ myCol = gcnew StringCollection;
   Console::WriteLine( "Initial contents of the StringCollection:" );
   PrintValues( myCol );
   
   // Adds a range of elements from an array to the end of the StringCollection.
   array<String^>^myArr = {"RED","orange","yellow","RED","green","blue","RED","indigo","violet","RED"};
   myCol->AddRange( myArr );
   Console::WriteLine( "After adding a range of elements:" );
   PrintValues( myCol );
   
   // Adds one element to the end of the StringCollection and inserts another at index 3.
   myCol->Add( "* white" );
   myCol->Insert( 3, "* gray" );
   Console::WriteLine( "After adding \"* white\" to the end and inserting \"* gray\" at index 3:" );
   PrintValues( myCol );
}

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

   Console::WriteLine();
}

Remarks

Duplicate strings are allowed in StringCollection.

If index is equal to Count, value is added to the end of StringCollection.

In collections of contiguous elements, such as lists, the elements that follow the insertion point move down to accommodate the new element. 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 is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
