# How to Delete an Element from a Specific Position in Vector?

Last Updated : 09 Feb, 2024

In C++, the vector is a popular container that is used to store elements in the same ways as arrays but also can resize itself when needed. In this article, we’ll explore how to remove an element from a specific position in a vector using C++.

For Example,

```Input:
myVector = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10};
Delete at index 2

Output:
myVector = {1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10};```

## Erase an Element from a Specific Position in Vector

In C++, the vector containers have the std::vector::erase() member function which provides a simple way to remove the element from a specific position in a vector in C++. This function takes the position of the element in the form of an iterator as an argument.

### Syntax of std::vector::erase()

`myVector.erase(pos);`

## C++

 `// C++ Program to demonstrate deleting an element from a ` `// specific position in a vector ` `#include ` `#include ` ` `  `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``// Initializing a vector with some elements ` `    ``vector<``int``> myVector = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 }; ` ` `  `    ``// Deleting an element from a specific position (index ` `    ``// 2) using erase() ` `    ``myVector.erase(myVector.begin() + 2); ` ` `  `    ``// Printing the vector after deleting the element ` `    ``cout << ``"Vector after deleting an element: "``; ` `    ``for` `(``int` `element : myVector) { ` `        ``cout << element << ``" "``; ` `    ``} ` `    ``cout << endl; ` ` `  `    ``return` `0; ` `}`

Output

```Vector after deleting an element: 1 2 4 5
```

Time Complexity: O(n), where m is the number of elements in the vector.
Auxiliary Space: O(1)
