Remarks

This constructor creates an ArraySegment<T> that delimits all the elements of array. That is, the Offset property of the ArraySegment<T> is 0 and its Count property is the length of array. To create an ArraySegment<T> that delimits only part of an array, use the ArraySegment<T>(T[], Int32, Int32) constructor.

The original array must be one-dimensional and must have zero-based indexing.

Multiple ArraySegment<T> instances can refer to the same original array and can overlap.

See Also

ArraySegment<T>(T[], Int32, Int32) ArraySegment<T>(T[], Int32, Int32) ArraySegment<T>(T[], Int32, Int32) ArraySegment<T>(T[], Int32, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the ArraySegment<T> structure that delimits the specified range of the elements in the specified array.

public:
 ArraySegment(cli::array <T> ^ array, int offset, int count);
public ArraySegment (T[] array, int offset, int count);
new ArraySegment<'T> : 'T[] * int * int -> ArraySegment<'T>
Public Sub New (array As T(), offset As Integer, count As Integer)
Parameters
array
T[]

The array containing the range of elements to delimit.

offset
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The zero-based index of the first element in the range.

count
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The number of elements in the range.

Exceptions

offset and count do not specify a valid range in array.
