ArrayList.Reverse Method

Reverses the order of the elements in the entire ArrayList.

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

'Declaration
Public Overridable Sub Reverse

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

The ArrayList is read-only.

This method uses Array.Reverse to reverse the order of the elements, such that the element at ArrayList [i], where i is any index within the range, moves to ArrayList [j], where j equals index + index + count - i - 1.

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

The following code example shows how to reverse the sort order of the values in an ArrayList.

    Public Shared Sub Main()

        ' Creates and initializes a new ArrayList.
        Dim myAL As New ArrayList()
        myAL.Add("The")
        myAL.Add("quick")
        myAL.Add("brown")
        myAL.Add("fox")
        myAL.Add("jumps")
        myAL.Add("over")
        myAL.Add("the")
        myAL.Add("lazy")
        myAL.Add("dog")

        ' Displays the values of the ArrayList.
        Console.WriteLine("The ArrayList initially contains the " _
           + "following values:")
        PrintValues(myAL)

        ' Reverses the sort order of the values of the ArrayList.
        myAL.Reverse()

        ' Displays the values of the ArrayList.
        Console.WriteLine("After reversing:")
        PrintValues(myAL)
    End Sub

    Public Shared Sub PrintValues(myList As IEnumerable)
        Dim obj As [Object]
        For Each obj In  myList
            Console.WriteLine("   {0}", obj)
        Next obj
        Console.WriteLine()
    End Sub 'PrintValues
