Hi,

I have list int
C#
List<int> buffer1 = new List<int>();

I added some values to this list string
C#
buffer1.Add(f);
buffer1.Add(f1);
buffer1.Add(f2);
buffer1.Add(f3);
buffer1.Add(f4);


How can I find the largest value of the list strin)

Thanks
John

Are you sure it is new List();?
Could it be new List<YourListElementType>();?
If so, what type is YourListElementType?

Your question is wrong...

You can use List.Max() function to get the max value. I your case
C#
var maxValue = buffer1.Max();

Essentially you store the first value in a variable. Then loop through and compare. If it is larger then store that value. By the time you are done going through the whole list you'll have the largest value.

C#
Int32 largestVal = buffer1[0];
foreach (Int32 temp in buffer1)
{
   if (temp > largestVal)
     largestVal = temp;
}
