C# | Insert at the specified index in StringCollection

StringCollection class is a new addition to the .NET Framework class library that represents a collection of strings. StringCollection class is defined in the System.Collections.Specialized namespace.
StringCollection.Insert(Int32, String) method is used to insert a string into the StringCollection at the specified index.

Syntax:

public void Insert (int index, string value);

Parameters:

  • index: The zero-based index at which value is inserted.
  • value: The string to insert. The value can be null.

Exception: This method will give ArgumentOutOfRangeException if the index is less than zero Or index is greater than Count.

Note:

  • Duplicate strings are allowed in StringCollection.
  • If index is equal to Count, value is added to the end of StringCollection.
  • This method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
