StringEnumerator.Reset Method

Definition

Sets the enumerator to its initial position, which is before the first element in the collection.

public:
 void Reset();
public void Reset ();
member this.Reset : unit -> unit
Public Sub Reset ()

Exceptions

The collection was modified after the enumerator was created.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates several of the properties and methods of StringEnumerator.

#using <System.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections::Specialized;
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a StringCollection.
   StringCollection^ myCol = gcnew StringCollection;
   array<String^>^myArr = {"red","orange","yellow","green","blue","indigo","violet"};
   myCol->AddRange( myArr );
   
   // Enumerates the elements in the StringCollection.
   StringEnumerator^ myEnumerator = myCol->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnumerator->MoveNext() )
      Console::WriteLine( "{0}", myEnumerator->Current );

   Console::WriteLine();
   
   // Resets the enumerator and displays the first element again.
   myEnumerator->Reset();
   if ( myEnumerator->MoveNext() )
      Console::WriteLine( "The first element is {0}.", myEnumerator->Current );
}

/*
This code produces the following output.

red
orange
yellow
green
blue
indigo
violet

The first element is red.

*/
using System;
using System.Collections.Specialized;

public class SamplesStringEnumerator  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Creates and initializes a StringCollection.
      StringCollection myCol = new StringCollection();
      String[] myArr = new String[] { "red", "orange", "yellow", "green", "blue", "indigo", "violet" };
      myCol.AddRange( myArr );

      // Enumerates the elements in the StringCollection.
      StringEnumerator myEnumerator = myCol.GetEnumerator();
      while ( myEnumerator.MoveNext() )
         Console.WriteLine( "{0}", myEnumerator.Current );
      Console.WriteLine();

      // Resets the enumerator and displays the first element again.
      myEnumerator.Reset();
      if ( myEnumerator.MoveNext() )
         Console.WriteLine( "The first element is {0}.", myEnumerator.Current );

   }

}

Imports System.Collections.Specialized

Public Class SamplesStringEnumerator

   Public Shared Sub Main()

      ' Creates and initializes a StringCollection.
      Dim myCol As New StringCollection()
      Dim myArr() As [String] = {"red", "orange", "yellow", "green", "blue", "indigo", "violet"}
      myCol.AddRange(myArr)

      ' Enumerates the elements in the StringCollection.
      Dim myEnumerator As StringEnumerator = myCol.GetEnumerator()
      While myEnumerator.MoveNext()
         Console.WriteLine("{0}", myEnumerator.Current)
      End While
      Console.WriteLine()

      ' Resets the enumerator and displays the first element again.
      myEnumerator.Reset()
      If myEnumerator.MoveNext() Then
         Console.WriteLine("The first element is {0}.", myEnumerator.Current)
      End If 

   End Sub

End Class


'This code produces the following output.
'
'red
'orange
'yellow
'green
'blue
'indigo
'violet
'
'The first element is red.

Remarks

Reset moves the enumerator to the beginning of the collection, before the first element. After Reset, MoveNext must be called to advance the enumerator to the first element of the collection before reading the value of Current.
