Removing Elements From an Array

I need to know the proper syntax for removal of an element from a vector. Do I have this correct?
Example:
I have an object that contains a Vector of Strings named dataType.
I have an int variable named elementNumber that specifies the location of the element I want to remove.
Would I call the following method to remove the String Object?
dataType.remove(elementNumber)
Thanks,
Landon

from the API
remove
public Object remove(int index)
Removes the element at the specified position in this Vector. shifts any subsequent elements to the left (subtracts one from their indices). Returns the element that was removed from the Vector.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
