How to splice a list in apex?

 for(String stagename : pickListValuesList)
            if(stagename == 'Closed Won' || stagename == 'Closed Lost')
  • Exactly what you want to do? Do you want to insert a list after a particular index in another list? – rahul gawale Jan 27 at 5:45
  • What is ur requirement?Splice is not a function in apex – user75427 Jan 27 at 6:10

It seems that you want to remove elements "Closed Won" and "Closed Lost" from the list. You can do it by the below code.

pickListValuesList.remove(pickListValuesList.indexOf('Closed Won'));
pickListValuesList.remove(pickListValuesList.indexOf('Closed Lost'));

Since "splice" is not a function for apex lists. You can find all the functions supported by apex list here - https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.apexcode.meta/apexcode/apex_methods_system_list.htm

    +1, although if the values may be duplicated or simply not present, a while loop would apply here: Integer index; while((index = picklistValuesList.indexOf('Closed Won')) > -1) picklistValuesList.remove(index); while((index = picklistValuesList.indexOf('Closed Lost')) > -1) picklistValuesList.remove(index); – sfdcfox Jan 27 at 6:05
  • @sfdcfox If that's a factor I'd probably just write out a loop over all the elements, e.g. for(integer i = picklistValuesList.size(); i --> 0;){if(picklistValuesList[i] == 'Closed Won' || picklistValuesList[i] == 'Closed Lost'){picklistValuesList.remove(i);}} – IllusiveBrian Jan 27 at 16:00
