C# LinkedList<T>

C# LinkedList<T> class uses the concept of linked list. It allows us to insert and delete elements fastly. It can have duplicate elements. It is found in System.Collections.Generic namespace.

It allows us to add and remove element at before or last index.

C# LinkedList<T> example

Let's see an example of generic LinkedList<T> class that stores elements using AddLast() and AddFirst() methods and iterates elements using for-each loop.

snippet
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

public class LinkedListExample
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // Create a list of strings
        var names = new LinkedList();
        names.AddLast("Sonoo Jaiswal");
        names.AddLast("Ankit");
        names.AddLast("Peter");
        names.AddLast("Irfan");
        names.AddFirst("John");//added to first index

        // Iterate list element using foreach loop
        foreach (var name in names)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(name);
        }
    }
}

Output:

Output
John Sonoo Jaiswal Ankit Peter Irfan
Note
Note: Unlike List, you cannot create LinkedList using Collection initializer.

C# LinkedList<T> example 2

Let's see another example of generic LinkedList<T> class that stores elements before and after specific node. To get the specific node, we are calling Find() method.

snippet
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

public class LinkedListExample
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // Create a list of strings
        var names = new LinkedList();
        names.AddLast("Sonoo");
        names.AddLast("Ankit");
        names.AddLast("Peter");
        names.AddLast("Irfan");
        
        //insert new element before "Peter"
        LinkedListNode node=names.Find("Peter");
        names.AddBefore(node, "John");
        names.AddAfter(node, "Lucy");

        // Iterate list element using foreach loop
        foreach (var name in names)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(name);
        }
    }
}

Output:

Output
Sonoo Ankit John Peter Lucy Irfan

As you can see in the above output "John" and "Lucy" are added before and after "Peter".
