LinkedList.AddFirst Method (Generic LinkedListNode)

Adds the specified new node at the start of the LinkedList.

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

public void AddFirst (
	LinkedListNode<T> node
)
public void AddFirst (
	LinkedListNode<T> node
)
public function AddFirst (
	node : LinkedListNode<T>
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

node

The new LinkedListNode to add at the start of the LinkedList.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

node is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

InvalidOperationException

node belongs to another LinkedList.

LinkedList accepts a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) as a valid Value for reference types and allows duplicate values.

If the LinkedList is empty, the new node becomes the First and the Last.

This method is an O(1) operation.

The following code example and output demonstrate the AddFirst method. The code example removes the last node in a linked list of strings, adds a new node to the end of the list, marks that node, removes it, and finally uses the AddFirst(Generic LinkedListNode) method overload to insert the node at the beginning of the list.

This code and output are part of a larger example provided for the LinkedList class.

// Move the last node to be the first node.
mark1 = sentence.Last;
sentence.RemoveLast();
sentence.AddFirst(mark1);
