How to remove an Item from a C# List

Remove Items

The Remove method removes the first occurrence of a specific object from a List. The Remove method takes an item as its parameter.

We can use the RemoveAt method to remove an item at the specified position within a List. 

The following code snippet removes an item from a List. 

// Create a list of strings
List<string> AuthorList = new List<string>();
AuthorList.Add("Mahesh Chand");
AuthorList.Add("Praveen Kumar");
AuthorList.Add("Raj Kumar");
AuthorList.Add("Nipun Tomar");
AuthorList.Add("Dinesh Beniwal");

AuthorList.Remove("Mahesh Chand");

The RemoveAt method removes an item at the specified zero based index. The following code snippet removes an item at 2nd position in the List.  


The RemoveRange method removes a number of items based on the specified starting index and number of items. The RemoveRange method takes first parameter as the starting position and second parameter as the number of the items to be removed from the List. The following code snippet removes 2 items starting at the 3rd position. 

AuthorList.RemoveRange(3, 2);
