Examples

The following code example removes elements from 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;
   array<String^>^myArr = {"RED","orange","yellow","RED","green","blue","RED","indigo","violet","RED"};
   myCol->AddRange( myArr );
   Console::WriteLine( "Initial contents of the StringCollection:" );
   PrintValues( myCol );
   
   // Removes one element from the StringCollection.
   myCol->Remove( "yellow" );
   Console::WriteLine( "After removing \"yellow\":" );
   PrintValues( myCol );
   
   // Removes all occurrences of a value from the StringCollection.
   int i = myCol->IndexOf( "RED" );
   while ( i > -1 )
   {
      myCol->RemoveAt( i );
      i = myCol->IndexOf( "RED" );
   }

   Console::WriteLine( "After removing all occurrences of \"RED\":" );
   PrintValues( myCol );
   
   // Clears the entire collection.
   myCol->Clear();
   Console::WriteLine( "After clearing the collection:" );
   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

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