Public ReadOnly Property Next As LinkedListNode(Of T)

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.LinkedListNode(Of T)

A reference to the next node in the LinkedList(Of T), or null if the current node is the last element (Last) of the LinkedList(Of T).

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