## Second largest element in an integer array

Here, we will create an array of integers and then read elements from the user after that find the second largest element from the array and print that element on the console screen.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to find the second largest elements from the array of integers is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

## VB.Net code to find the second largest element in an integer array

```'VB.Net program to find the second largest element
'from the array of integers.

Module Module1

Sub Main()
Dim arr As Integer() = New Integer(5) {}
Dim first_large As Integer = 0
Dim second_large As Integer = 0

Console.WriteLine("Enter array elements: ")
For i As Integer = 0 To 4 Step 1
Console.Write("Element[{0}]: ", i)

If (first_large < arr(i)) Then
second_large = first_large
first_large = arr(i)
End If
Next
Console.WriteLine("Second Largest element in array is: {0}", second_large)
End Sub

End Module
```

## Output

```Enter array elements:
Element: 10
Element: 12
Element: 13
Element: 15
Element: 16
Second Largest element in array is: 15
Press any key to continue . . .
```

## Explanation

In the above program, we created a module Module1 that contains a function Main().

```Dim arr As Integer() = New Integer(5) {}
Dim first_large As Integer = 0
Dim second_large As Integer = 0
```

In the Main() we created an array arr of five elements and two integer variables first_large and second_large, which are initialized with 0.

```Console.WriteLine("Enter array elements: ")
For i As Integer = 0 To 4 Step 1
Console.Write("Element[{0}]: ", i)

If (first_large < arr(i)) Then
second_large = first_large
first_large = arr(i)
End If
Next
Console.WriteLine("Second Largest element in array is: {0}", second_large)
```

In the above code, we read the elements of the array from the user and then find the second largest element from the array and then print the largest element on the console screen.
