Name

ArrayList

Synopsis

This class is similar to an array, but it can grow or shrink as needed. The Capacity property returns the maximum number of elements the ArrayList can hold. You can reduce the size by setting Capacity explicitly or using the TrimToSize() method. An ArrayList can be constructed empty or with an integer argument that sets its initial size. You can also pass the constructor an object that implements ICollection to fill the ArrayList with the contents of that object.

A number of methods are provided to modify the contents of the ArrayList. The Add() and AddRange() methods add elements to the end of the list. Insert() and InsertRange() add new elements at a specified location within the list.
