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

abstract Remove : 
        key:Object -> unit
override Remove : 
        key:Object -> unit

Parameters

key
Type: System.Object

The key of the element to remove.

Exception Condition
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.
