This method is used to search for an element that matches the conditions defined by the specified predicate and returns the last occurrence within the entire Array.

Syntax:

public static T FindLast<T> (T[] array, Predicate<T> match);

Parameters:

array: It is the one-dimensional, zero-based array to search.
match: It is the predicate that defines the conditions of the element to search for.

Return Value: This method returns the last element that matches the conditions defined by the specified predicate if it is found otherwise returns the default value for type T.

Exception: This method throws ArgumentNullException if the array is null or match is null.

Below programs illustrate the use of Array.FindLast(T[], Predicate) Method:

Example 1:

CSHARP




// C# program to demonstrate
// Array.FindLast(T[], Predicate<T>)
// Method
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
  
public class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main()
    {
  
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // new the String
            String[] myArr = {"Sun", "Son", "Tue", "Thu"};
  
            // Display the values of the myArr.
            Console.WriteLine("Initial Array:");
  
            // calling the PrintIndexAndValues()
            // method to print
            PrintIndexAndValues(myArr);
  
            // getting a last element with required
            // condition using method FindLast()
            string value = Array.FindLast(myArr, 
                   element => element.StartsWith("S",
                          StringComparison.Ordinal));
  
            // Display the value of
            // the found element.
            Console.Write("Last occurrence: ");
  
            // printing the string
            // following the condition
            Console.Write("{0}", value);
        }
          
        catch (ArgumentNullException e) {
  
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
  
    // Defining the method
    // PrintIndexAndValues
    public static void PrintIndexAndValues(String[] myArr)
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < myArr.Length; i++) {
  
            Console.WriteLine("{0}", myArr[i]);
        }
        Console.WriteLine();
    }
}

Output:

Initial Array:
Sun
Son
Tue
Thu

Last occurrence: Son

Example 2:

CSHARP




// C# program to demonstrate
// Array.FindLast(T[], Predicate<T>)
// Method
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
  
public class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main()
    {
  
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // new Array String with null
            String[] myArr = null;
  
            // getting a last element with required
            // condition using method FindLast()
            string value = Array.FindLast(myArr,
                element => element.StartsWith("S",
                       StringComparison.Ordinal));
  
            // Display the value of
            // the found element.
            Console.Write("Last occurrence: ");
  
            // printing the string
            // following the condition
            Console.Write("{0}", value);
        }
        catch (ArgumentNullException e) {
  
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
  
    // Defining the method
    // PrintIndexAndValues
    public static void PrintIndexAndValues(String[] myArr)
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < myArr.Length; i++) {
  
            Console.WriteLine("{0}", myArr[i]);
        }
        Console.WriteLine();
    }
}

Output:

Exception Thrown: System.ArgumentNullException
