Remove Method

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Removes the first occurrence of a specific object from the ArrayList.

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

public virtual void Remove(
	Object obj
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System..::..Object
The Object to remove from the ArrayList. The value can be nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Implements

IList..::..Remove(Object)

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

The ArrayList is read-only.

-or-

The ArrayList has a fixed size.

If the ArrayList does not contain the specified object, the ArrayList remains unchanged. No exception is thrown.

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

This method determines equality by calling Object..::..Equals.

In collections of contiguous elements, such as lists, the elements that follow the removed element move up to occupy the vacated spot. If the collection is indexed, the indexes of the elements that are moved are also updated. This behavior does not apply to collections where elements are conceptually grouped into buckets, such as a hash table.
