LinkedList.LinkedList() Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the LinkedList class that is empty.

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

LinkedList ()
public LinkedList ()
public function LinkedList ()
Not applicable.

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 First and Last properties contain a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

This constructor is an O(1) operation.

The following code example creates and initializes a LinkedList of type String, adds several nodes, and then displays its contents.

#using <System.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
using namespace System::Collections::Generic;

void main()
   // Create and initialize a new LinkedList.
   LinkedList< String^ > ^ ll = gcnew LinkedList< String^ >;
   ll->AddLast( L"red" );
   ll->AddLast( L"orange" );
   ll->AddLast( L"yellow" );
   ll->AddLast( L"orange" );
   // Display the contents of the LinkedList.
   if ( ll->Count > 0 )
      Console::WriteLine( L"The first item in the list is {0}.", ll->First->Value );
      Console::WriteLine( L"The last item in the list is {0}.", ll->Last->Value );
      Console::WriteLine( L"The LinkedList contains:" );

      for each (String^ s in ll)
         Console::WriteLine( L"   {0}", s );
      Console::WriteLine( L"The LinkedList is empty." );

/* This code produces the following output.

The first item in the list is red.
The last item in the list is orange.
The LinkedList contains:
