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

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property Next As LinkedListNode(Of T)
'Usage
Dim instance As LinkedListNode(Of T)
Dim value As LinkedListNode(Of T)

value = instance.Next

/** @property */
public LinkedListNode<T> get_Next ()

public function get Next () : LinkedListNode<T>

Not applicable.

Property Value

A reference to the next node in the LinkedList, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the current node is the last element (Last) of the LinkedList.

The following code example creates a LinkedListNode, adds it to a LinkedList, and tracks the values of its properties as the LinkedList changes.
