ArrayList.SetRange(Int32, ICollection) ArrayList.SetRange(Int32, ICollection) ArrayList.SetRange(Int32, ICollection) ArrayList.SetRange(Int32, ICollection) Method

Definition

Copies the elements of a collection over a range of elements in the ArrayList.

public:
 virtual void SetRange(int index, System::Collections::ICollection ^ c);
public virtual void SetRange (int index, System.Collections.ICollection c);
abstract member SetRange : int * System.Collections.ICollection -> unit
override this.SetRange : int * System.Collections.ICollection -> unit
Public Overridable Sub SetRange (index As Integer, c As ICollection)
Parameters
index
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The zero-based ArrayList index at which to start copying the elements of c.

c
ICollection ICollection ICollection ICollection

The ICollection whose elements to copy to the ArrayList. The collection itself cannot be null, but it can contain elements that are null.

Exceptions

index is less than zero.

-or-

index plus the number of elements in c is greater than Count.

Examples

The following code example shows how to set and get a range of elements in the ArrayList.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myList, char mySeparator );
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a new ArrayList.
   ArrayList^ myAL = gcnew ArrayList;
   myAL->Add( "The" );
   myAL->Add( "quick" );
   myAL->Add( "brown" );
   myAL->Add( "fox" );
   myAL->Add( "jumps" );
   myAL->Add( "over" );
   myAL->Add( "the" );
   myAL->Add( "lazy" );
   myAL->Add( "dog" );
   
   // Creates and initializes the source ICollection.
   Queue^ mySourceList = gcnew Queue;
   mySourceList->Enqueue( "big" );
   mySourceList->Enqueue( "gray" );
   mySourceList->Enqueue( "wolf" );
   
   // Displays the values of five elements starting at index 0.
   ArrayList^ mySubAL = myAL->GetRange( 0, 5 );
   Console::WriteLine( "Index 0 through 4 contains:" );
   PrintValues( mySubAL, '\t' );
   
   // Replaces the values of five elements starting at index 1 with the values in the ICollection.
   myAL->SetRange( 1, mySourceList );
   
   // Displays the values of five elements starting at index 0.
   mySubAL = myAL->GetRange( 0, 5 );
   Console::WriteLine( "Index 0 through 4 now contains:" );
   PrintValues( mySubAL, '\t' );
}

void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myList, char mySeparator )
{
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myList->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      Object^ obj = safe_cast<Object^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::Write( "{0}{1}", mySeparator, obj );
   }

   Console::WriteLine();
}

Remarks

ArrayList accepts null as a valid value and allows duplicate elements.

The order of the elements in the ICollection is preserved in the ArrayList.

This method is an O(n + 1) operation, where n is Count.
