Dart Programming - List.single Method


Advertisements

Checks if the list has only one element and returns it.

Syntax

List.single 

Example

void main() { 
   var lst = new List(); 
   lst.add(12);
   print("The list has only one element: ${lst.single}"); 
}  

It will produce the following output

The list values in reverse order: (13, 12) 

It will produce the following output

The list has only one element: 12 

This property throws an exception if the List has more than one element in it. The following example illustrates the same −

void main() { 
   var lst = new List(); 
   lst.add(12); 
   lst.add(10); 
   print(lst.single); 
}

If the list has more than one element, then the same code will throw the following exception
