List(Of T).Reverse Method ()

 

Reverses the order of the elements in the entire List(Of T).

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

Public Sub Reverse

This method uses Array.Reverse to reverse the order of the elements.

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

The following example demonstrates both overloads of the Reverse method. The example creates a List(Of T) of strings and adds six strings. The Reverse() method overload is used to reverse the list, and then the Reverse(Int32, Int32) method overload is used to reverse the middle of the list, beginning with element 1 and encompassing four elements.

        dinosaurs.Add("Amargasaurus")
        dinosaurs.Add("Coelophysis")
        dinosaurs.Add("Oviraptor")

        Console.WriteLine()
        For Each dinosaur As String In dinosaurs
            Console.WriteLine(dinosaur)
