Get element at specific index of LinkedList example

With this example we are going to demonstrate how to get an element at a specific index of a LinkedList. The LinkedList API provides methods to do such operations. In short, to get an element of a LinkedList, giving an index as parameter you should:

  • Create a new LinkedList.
  • Populate the list with elements, with add(E e) API method of LinkedList.
  • Invoke the get(int index) API method of LinkedList, to return the element at a specific index.

Let’s take a look at the code snippet that follows:

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

    // Object get(int index) method returns element at specified index from LinkedList
    System.out.println("LinkedList contains : ");
    for(int i=0; i < linkedList.size(); i++)



LinkedList contains : 

This was an example of how to get an element at a specific index from a LinkedList in Java.
