C# Binary Search Tree Implementation

This example shows how to implement a Binary Search Tree using  C#. A tree whose nodes have at most 2 child nodes is called a binary tree. we name them the left and right child because each node in a binary tree can have only 2 children.
A sample binary tree:
binary tree 2

Tree Traversals (PreOrder, InOrder, PostOrder)

Traversal is a process to visit all the nodes of a tree. In this example, I implemented three method which we use to traverse a tree.

  • PreOrder Traversal
  • InOrder Traversal
  • PostOrder Traversal

PreOrder Traversal:

  • Visit the root
  • Traverse the left subtree
  • Traverse the right subtree

InOrder Traversal:

  • Traverse the left subtree
  • Visit the root
  • Traverse the right subtree

PostOrder Traversal:

  • Traverse the left subtree
  • Traverse the right subtree
  • Visit the root

All source code is below.
Node Class:

        
    class Node
    {
        public Node LeftNode { get; set; }
        public Node RightNode { get; set; }
        public int Data { get; set; }
    }

BinaryTree Class:

        
    class BinaryTree
    {
        public Node Root { get; set; }

        public bool Add(int value)
        {
            Node before = null, after = this.Root;

            while (after != null)
            {
                before = after;
                if (value < after.Data) //Is new node in left tree? 
                      after = after.LeftNode; 
                else if (value > after.Data) //Is new node in right tree?
                    after = after.RightNode;
                else
                {
                    //Exist same value
                    return false;
                }
            }

            Node newNode = new Node();
            newNode.Data = value;

            if (this.Root == null)//Tree ise empty
                this.Root = newNode;
            else
            {
                if (value < before.Data)
                    before.LeftNode = newNode;
                else
                    before.RightNode = newNode;
            }

            return true;
        }

        public Node Find(int value)

C# Collections Tutorial

This tutorial contains the information about C# Collection types.

  • Collections are similar to Arrays, providing a more flexible way to work with an object group.
  • You would have noticed in arrays that you must define in advance the number of elements in an array. When the array was declared, this had to be done. But you don’t need to define the size of the collection in advance in a collection. Elements can be added or even removed from the collection at any time.
Collection Description
ArrayList The ArrayList is similar to the C# array data type. The greatest difference is the dynamic nature of the collection of array list.
Stack The stack represents a simple last-in-first-out (LIFO) non-generic collection of objects.
Queue The Queue is a special collection which represents first-in, first-out concept of objects.
Hashtable A hash table is a collection that is used to store key-value pairs.

C# ArrayList Example

The ArrayList is similar to the C# array data type. The greatest difference is the dynamic nature of the collection of array list.

  • The add method is used to add an element to the ArrayList.

ArrayList Example:

ArrayList arrayList = new ArrayList();
arrayList.Add("Element 1");
arrayList.Add("Element 2");
arrayList.Add("Element 3");

Console.WriteLine("ArrayList Count: " + arrayList.Count);
Console.WriteLine("Contains Element2: " + arrayList.Contains("Element 2"));
arrayList.Remove("Element 2");
Console.WriteLine("ArrayList Count: " + arrayList.Count);

Program Output:
array list output

C# Stack Example

The stack represents a simple last-in-first-out (LIFO) non-generic collection of objects.

  • To add an element to the stack, the push method is used. The statement’s general syntax is shown below:
stack.Push("Obj");
  • To remove an element from the stack, the pop method is used. The pop operation returns the stack’s top element. The statement’s general syntax is given below:
object popObj = stack.Pop();

Stack Example:

            Stack stack = new Stack();
            stack.Push("Obj1");
            stack.Push("Obj2");
            stack.Push("Obj3");

            Console.WriteLine("Objects");
            Console.WriteLine("-------");
            foreach (Object obj in stack)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(obj);
            }
            object popObj = stack.Pop();
            Console.WriteLine("Last In/First Out(LIFO): " + popObj);

            Console.WriteLine("The number of elements in the stack: " + stack.Count);
            Console.WriteLine("Contains Obj1:  " + stack.Contains("Obj1"));

Program Output:
