Working with List<String> and Reactive extensions

I have started researching Reactive extensions and I would like to know how to do the following (ill try and keep it simple):


  1. Have a list of string (or any other type)

  2. When an item is added to the said list, do something with it.


Answer

You can't do that with the existing List<String> class - it doesn't provide notifications, and there's nothing that Reactive Extensions can do about that.

You might want to look at ObservableCollection<T> though.
