Definition

Converts an array of one type to an array of another type.

public:
generic <typename TInput, typename TOutput>
 static cli::array <TOutput> ^ ConvertAll(cli::array <TInput> ^ array, Converter<TInput, TOutput> ^ converter);
public static TOutput[] ConvertAll<TInput,TOutput> (TInput[] array, Converter<TInput,TOutput> converter);
static member ConvertAll : 'Input[] * Converter<'Input, 'Output> -> 'Output[]
Public Shared Function ConvertAll(Of TInput, TOutput) (array As TInput(), converter As Converter(Of TInput, TOutput)) As TOutput()
Type Parameters
TInput

The type of the elements of the source array.

TOutput

The type of the elements of the target array.

Parameters
array
TInput[]

The one-dimensional, zero-based Array to convert to a target type.

Returns
TOutput[]

An array of the target type containing the converted elements from the source array.

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example defines a method named PointFToPoint that converts a PointF structure to a Point structure. The example then creates an array of PointF structures, creates a Converter<PointF, Point> delegate (Converter(Of PointF, Point) in Visual Basic) to represent the PointFToPoint method, and passes the delegate to the ConvertAll method. The ConvertAll method passes each element of the input list to the PointFToPoint method and puts the converted elements into a new list of Point structures. Both lists are displayed.

#using <System.Drawing.dll>

using namespace System::Drawing;
using namespace System::Collections::Generic;

Point PointFToPoint(PointF pf)
{
    return Point((int) pf.X, (int) pf.Y);
};

void main()
{
    // Create an array of PointF objects.
    array<PointF>^ apf = {
        PointF(27.8F, 32.62F),
        PointF(99.3F, 147.273F),
        PointF(7.5F, 1412.2F) };


    // Display each element in the PointF array.
    Console::WriteLine();
    for each(PointF p in apf)
    {
        Console::WriteLine(p);
    }

    // Convert each PointF element to a Point object.
    array<Point>^ ap = 
        Array::ConvertAll(apf, 
            gcnew Converter<PointF, Point>(PointFToPoint)
        );

Remarks

The Converter<TInput,TOutput> is a delegate to a method that converts an object to the target type. The elements of array are individually passed to the Converter<TInput,TOutput>, and the converted elements are saved in the new array.

The source array remains unchanged.

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is the Length of array.
