Kotlin List drop Example



In this post, we demonstrate the usage of the drop() method in Kotlin with an example. With the drop operations, we exclude some elements from the list.

Kotlin List drop Example

The example shows the usage of different drop operations.
package net.sourcecodeexamples.kotlin

fun main() {

    val nums = listOf(1,2,-1,-2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10)

    val nums2 = nums.drop(3)
    println(nums2)

    val nums3 = nums.dropLast(3)
    println(nums3)

    val nums4 = nums.sorted().dropWhile { e -> e < 0 }
    println(nums4)

    val nums5 = nums.sorted().dropLastWhile { e -> e > 0 }
    println(nums5)
}
Output:
[-2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
[1, 2, -1, -2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
[-2, -1]
