Stack.Contains() Method in C#

This method(comes under System.Collections namespace) is used to check whether a specified element is present is Stack or not. Internally this method checks for equality by calling the Object.Equals method. Also, it performs a linear search, therefore, this method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

Syntax:

public virtual bool Contains (object obj);

Here, obj is the object to locate in the Stack. The value can be null.

Return Value: It returns true, if obj is found in the Stack otherwise returns false.

Below programs illustrate the use of above-discussed method:

        // Creating a Stack
        Stack myStack = new Stack();
  
        // Inserting the elements into the Stack
        myStack.Push("Geeks");
        myStack.Push("Geeks Classes");
        myStack.Push("Noida");
        myStack.Push("Data Structures");
        myStack.Push("GeeksforGeeks");
  
        // Checking whether the element is
        // present in the Stack or not
        // The function returns True if the
        // element is present in the Stack, 
        // else returns False
        Console.WriteLine(myStack.Contains("GeeksforGeeks"));
    }
