List size() method in Java with Examples

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 06 Oct, 2021

The size() method of the List interface in Java is used to get the number of elements in this list. That is, this method returns the count of elements present in this list container.

Syntax: 

public int size()

Parameters: This method does not take any parameters.

Return Value: This method returns the number of elements in this list.

Illustration: Assume it to be an integer list 

Input  : {3,2,1,5,7} 
Output : 5

Example 1:

Java




// Java program to Illustrate size() method
// of List class for Integer value
 
// Importing required classes
import java.util.*;
 
// Main class
public class GFG {
 
    // Main driver method
    public static void main(String[] arg)
    {
        // Creating object of ArrayList class
        List<Integer> list = new ArrayList<Integer>();
 
        // Populating List by adding integer elements
        // using add() method
        list.add(1);
        list.add(2);
        list.add(3);
        list.add(4);
        list.add(5);
 
        // Printing elements of List
        System.out.println("Before operation: " + list);
 
        // Getting total size of list
        // using size() method
        int size = list.size();
 
        // Printing the size of List
        System.out.println("Size of list = " + size);
    }
}
Output
Before operation: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
Size of list = 5

Example 2:

Java




// Java program to Illustrate size() method
// of List class for Integer value
 
// Importing required classes
import java.util.*;
 
// Main class
public class GFG {
 
    // Main driver method
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creating an empty string list by
        // declaring elements of string type
        List<String> list = new ArrayList<String>();
 
        // Populating List by adding string elements
        // using add() method
        list.add("Geeks");
        list.add("for");
        list.add("Geeks");
 
        // Printing the List
        System.out.println("Before operation: " + list);
 
        // Getting total size of list
        // using size() method
        int size = list.size();
 
        // Printing the size of list
        System.out.println("Size of list = " + size);
    }
}
Output
Before operation: [Geeks, for, Geeks]
Size of list = 3
