public LinkedListNode<T> FindLast(
	T value
)

Type: T

The value to locate in the LinkedList<T>.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.LinkedListNode<T>
The last LinkedListNode<T> that contains the specified value, if found; otherwise, null.

The LinkedList<T> is searched backward starting at Last and ending at First.

This method performs a linear search; therefore, this method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

The following code example and output demonstrate the FindLast method. The code example uses the FindLast method to find the last node that has a particular value, and adds two new nodes after it.

This code and output are part of a larger example provided for the LinkedList<T> class.
