StringEnumerator.MoveNext Method

Advances the enumerator to the next element of the collection.

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

public bool MoveNext()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the enumerator was successfully advanced to the next element; false if the enumerator has passed the end of the collection.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The collection was modified after the enumerator was created.

After an enumerator is created or after a Reset is called, an enumerator is positioned before the first element of the collection, and the first call to MoveNext moves the enumerator over the first element of the collection.

If MoveNext passes the end of the collection, the enumerator is positioned after the last element in the collection and MoveNext returns false. When the enumerator is at this position, subsequent calls to MoveNext also return false until Reset is called.

An enumerator remains valid as long as the collection remains unchanged. If changes are made to the collection, such as adding, modifying, or deleting elements, the enumerator is irrecoverably invalidated and the next call to MoveNext or Reset throws an InvalidOperationException. If the collection is modified between MoveNext and Current, Current returns the element that it is set to, even if the enumerator is already invalidated.

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


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 );

   }

}
