elementAt method

E elementAt(
  1. int index

Returns the indexth element.

The index must be non-negative and less than length. Index zero represents the first element (so iterable.elementAt(0) is equivalent to iterable.first).

May iterate through the elements in iteration order, ignoring the first index elements and then returning the next. Some iterables may have a more efficient way to find the element.


final numbers = <int>[1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7];
final elementAt = numbers.elementAt(4); // 6


E elementAt(int index) {
  RangeError.checkNotNegative(index, "index");
  var iterator = this.iterator;
  var skipCount = index;
  while (iterator.moveNext()) {
    if (skipCount == 0) return iterator.current;
  throw IndexError.withLength(index, index - skipCount,
      indexable: this, name: "index");
