LinkedList lastIndexOf() method in Java

The Java.util.LinkedList.lastIndexOf(Object element) method is used to check and find the occurrence of a particular element in the list. If the element is present in the list then the lastIndexOf() method returns the index of last occurrence of the element otherwise it returns -1. This method is used to find the last occurrence of a particular element in a LinkedList.


LinkedList.lastIndexOf(Object element)

Parameters: The parameter element is of type LinkedList. It refers to the element whose last occurrence is required to be checked.

Return Value: The method returns the position of the last occurrence of the element in the list otherwise if the element is not present in the list then the method returns -1. The returned value is of integer type.

Below program illustrate the Java.util.LinkedList.lastIndexOf() method:





// Java code to illustrate lastIndexOf()
import java.util.LinkedList;
public class LinkedListDemo {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      // Creating an empty LinkedList
      LinkedList<String> list = new LinkedList<String>();
      // Use add() method to add elements in the list
      // Dispalying the list
      System.out.println("LinkedList:" + list);
      // The last position of an element is returned
      System.out.println("Last occurrence of Geeks is at index: " 
                                       + list.lastIndexOf("Geeks"));
      System.out.println("Last occurrence of 10 is at index: " 
                                      + list.lastIndexOf("10"));



LinkedList:[Geeks, for, Geeks, 10, 20]
Last occurrence of Geeks is at index: 2
Last occurrence of 10 is at index: 3
