You can use this arraylist class method to insert an item at a specific location in an arraylist.

Here is the simple arraylist example for insertion at specific index

ArrayList<Integer> str=new ArrayList<Integer>(); str.add(0); str.add(1); str.add(2); str.add(3); //Result = [0, 1, 2, 3] str.add(1, 11); str.add(2, 12); //Result = [0, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3]

The java.util.ArrayList.add(int index, E elemen) method inserts the specified element E at the specified position in this list.It shifts the element currently at that position (if any) and any subsequent elements to the right (will add one to their indices).


Following is the declaration for java.util.ArrayList.add() method

public void add(int index, E element)


  • index − The index at which the specified element is to be inserted.

  • element − The element to be inserted.

Return Value

This method does not return any value.


IndexOutOfBoundsException − if the index is out of range.


The following example shows the usage of java.util.ArrayList.add(index,E) method.

package com.tutorialspoint; import java.util.ArrayList; public class ArrayListDemo { public static void main(String[] args) { // create an empty array list with an initial capacity ArrayList<Integer> arrlist = new ArrayList<Integer>(5); // use add() method to add elements in the list arrlist.add(15); arrlist.add(22); arrlist.add(30); arrlist.add(40); // adding element 25 at third position arrlist.add(2,25); // let us print all the elements available in list for (Integer number : arrlist) { System.out.println("Number = " + number); } } }

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −

Number = 15 Number = 22 Number = 25 Number = 30 Number = 40
