Stack::Push Method

Inserts an object at the top of the Stack.

Namespace:  System.Collections
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public:
virtual void Push(
	Object^ obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System::Object

The Object to push onto the Stack. The value can be nullptr.

Stack is implemented as a circular buffer.

If Count already equals the capacity, the capacity of the Stack is increased by automatically reallocating the internal array, and the existing elements are copied to the new array before the new element is added.

nullptr can be pushed onto the Stack as a placeholder, if needed. It occupies a slot in the stack and is treated like any object.

If Count is less than the capacity of the stack, Push is an O(1) operation. If the capacity needs to be increased to accommodate the new element, Push becomes an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

The following example shows how to add elements to the Stack, remove elements from the Stack, or view the element at the top of the Stack.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myCollection, char mySeparator );
int main()
{

   // Creates and initializes a new Stack.
   Stack^ myStack = gcnew Stack;
   myStack->Push( "The" );
   myStack->Push( "quick" );
   myStack->Push( "brown" );
   myStack->Push( "fox" );

   // Displays the Stack.
   Console::Write( "Stack values:" );
   PrintValues( myStack, '\t' );

   // Removes an element from the Stack.
   Console::WriteLine( "(Pop)\t\t{0}", myStack->Pop() );

   // Displays the Stack.
   Console::Write( "Stack values:" );
   PrintValues( myStack, '\t' );

   // Removes another element from the Stack.
   Console::WriteLine( "(Pop)\t\t{0}", myStack->Pop() );

   // Displays the Stack.
   Console::Write( "Stack values:" );
   PrintValues( myStack, '\t' );

   // Views the first element in the Stack but does not remove it.
   Console::WriteLine( "(Peek)\t\t{0}", myStack->Peek() );

   // Displays the Stack.
   Console::Write( "Stack values:" );
   PrintValues( myStack, '\t' );
}

void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myCollection, char mySeparator )
{
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myCollection->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      Object^ obj = safe_cast<Object^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::Write( "{0}{1}", mySeparator, obj );
   }

   Console::WriteLine();
}
