ArrayList::Reverse Method

Reverses the order of the elements in the entire ArrayList.

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

public:
virtual void Reverse()

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

The ArrayList is read-only.

This method uses Array::Reverse to reverse the order of the elements, such that the element at ArrayList [i], where i is any index within the range, moves to ArrayList [j], where j equals index + index + count - i - 1.

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

The following code example shows how to reverse the sort order of the values in an ArrayList.


using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myList );
int main()
{

   // Creates and initializes a new ArrayList.
   ArrayList^ myAL = gcnew ArrayList;
   myAL->Add( "The" );
   myAL->Add( "quick" );
   myAL->Add( "brown" );
   myAL->Add( "fox" );
   myAL->Add( "jumps" );
   myAL->Add( "over" );
   myAL->Add( "the" );
   myAL->Add( "lazy" );
   myAL->Add( "dog" );

   // Displays the values of the ArrayList.
   Console::WriteLine( "The ArrayList initially contains the following values:" );
   PrintValues( myAL );

   // Reverses the sort order of the values of the ArrayList.
   myAL->Reverse();

   // Displays the values of the ArrayList.
   Console::WriteLine( "After reversing:" );
   PrintValues( myAL );
}

void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myList )
{
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myList->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      Object^ obj = safe_cast<Object^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::WriteLine( "   {0}", obj );
   }

   Console::WriteLine();
}

/* 
 This code produces the following output.

 The ArrayList initially contains the following values:
    The
    quick
    brown
    fox
    jumps
    over
    the
    lazy
    dog

 After reversing:
    dog
    lazy
    the
    over
    jumps
    fox
    brown
    quick
    The
