SortedList.Remove Method

Removes the element with the specified key from a SortedList object.

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

public virtual void Remove(
	Object key
)

Parameters

key
Type: System.Object
The key of the element to remove.

Implements

IDictionary.Remove(Object)

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

key is null.

NotSupportedException

The SortedList object is read-only.

-or-

The SortedList has a fixed size.

If the SortedList object does not contain an element with the specified key, the SortedList remains unchanged. No exception is thrown.

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.

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

The following code example shows how to remove elements from a SortedList object.


using System;
using System.Collections;
public class SamplesSortedList  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Creates and initializes a new SortedList.
      SortedList mySL = new SortedList();
      mySL.Add( "3c", "dog" );
      mySL.Add( "2c", "over" );
      mySL.Add( "1c", "brown" );
      mySL.Add( "1a", "The" );
      mySL.Add( "1b", "quick" );
      mySL.Add( "3a", "the" );
      mySL.Add( "3b", "lazy" );
      mySL.Add( "2a", "fox" );
      mySL.Add( "2b", "jumped" );

      // Displays the SortedList.
      Console.WriteLine( "The SortedList initially contains the following:" );
      PrintKeysAndValues( mySL );

      // Removes the element with the key "3b".
      mySL.Remove( "3b" );

      // Displays the current state of the SortedList.
      Console.WriteLine( "After removing \"lazy\":" );
      PrintKeysAndValues( mySL );

      // Removes the element at index 5.
      mySL.RemoveAt( 5 );

      // Displays the current state of the SortedList.
      Console.WriteLine( "After removing the element at index 5:" );
      PrintKeysAndValues( mySL );
   }


   public static void PrintKeysAndValues( SortedList myList )  {
      Console.WriteLine( "\t-KEY-\t-VALUE-" );
      for ( int i = 0; i < myList.Count; i++ )  {
         Console.WriteLine( "\t{0}:\t{1}", myList.GetKey(i), myList.GetByIndex(i) );
      }
      Console.WriteLine();
   }
}
/* 
This code produces the following output.

The SortedList initially contains the following:
    -KEY-    -VALUE-
    1a:    The
    1b:    quick
    1c:    brown

    2b:    jumped
    2c:    over
    3a:    the
