LinkedList<T>.First Property

Gets the first node of the LinkedList<T>.

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

public LinkedListNode<T> First { get; }

LinkedList<T> accepts null as a valid Value for reference types and allows duplicate values.

If the LinkedList<T> is empty, the First and Last properties contain null.

Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.

The following code example and output demonstrate the First property. The code example inserts a node at the beginning of a linked list of nodes containing strings, uses the First property to mark the first element, then removes the element and adds it to the end of the list.

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

// Move the first node to be the last node.
LinkedListNode<string> mark1 = sentence.First;
sentence.RemoveFirst();
sentence.AddLast(mark1);
