LinkedHashSet size example

In this example we shall show you how to get the size of a LinkedHashSet, that is the number of the elements that a LinkedHashSet contains. To get the size of a LinkedHashSet one should perform the following steps:

  • Create a new LinkedHashSet.
  • Populate the set with elements, using the add(E e) API method of LinkedHashSet.
  • Invoke the size() API method of LinkedHashSet to get the number of elements in this set.
  • Remove an element from the set, with remove(Object o) API method and then check its size again,

as described in the code snippet below.

package com.javacodegeeks.snippets.core;
import java.util.LinkedHashSet;
public class LinkedHashSetSize {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    // Create a LinkedHashSet and populate it with elements
    LinkedHashSet linkedHashSet = new LinkedHashSet();

    // int size() method returns the number of elements in the LinkedHashSet   
    System.out.println("Size of LinkedHashSet : " + linkedHashSet.size());
    // Remove one element from the LinkedHashSet using remove method
    System.out.println("Size of LinkedHashSet : " + linkedHashSet.size());


Size of LinkedHashSet : 3
Size of LinkedHashSet : 2

This was an example of how to get the size of a LinkedHashSet in Java.
