List(Of T).Reverse Method

Reverses the order of the elements in the entire List(Of T).

Namespace:  System.Collections.Generic
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

'Declaration
Public Sub Reverse
'Usage
Dim instance As List

instance.Reverse()

This method uses Array.Reverse to reverse the order of the elements, such that the element at List(Of T)[i], where i is any index within the range, moves to List(Of T)[j], where j equals index plus index plus count minus i minus 1.

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

The following code example demonstrates both overloads of the Reverse method. The code example creates a List(Of T) of strings and adds six strings. The Reverse method overload is used to reverse the list, and then the Reverse(Int32, Int32) method overload is used to reverse the middle of the list, beginning with element 1 and encompassing four elements.
