Examples

The following example shows how to copy a Queue into a one-dimensional array.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintValues( Array^ myArr, char mySeparator );
int main()
{
   // Creates and initializes the source Queue.
   Queue^ mySourceQ = gcnew Queue;
   mySourceQ->Enqueue( "three" );
   mySourceQ->Enqueue( "napping" );
   mySourceQ->Enqueue( "cats" );
   mySourceQ->Enqueue( "in" );
   mySourceQ->Enqueue( "the" );
   mySourceQ->Enqueue( "barn" );

   // Creates and initializes the one-dimensional target Array.
   Array^ myTargetArray = Array::CreateInstance( String::typeid, 15 );
   myTargetArray->SetValue( "The", 0 );
   myTargetArray->SetValue( "quick", 1 );
   myTargetArray->SetValue( "brown", 2 );
   myTargetArray->SetValue( "fox", 3 );
   myTargetArray->SetValue( "jumps", 4 );
   myTargetArray->SetValue( "over", 5 );
   myTargetArray->SetValue( "the", 6 );
   myTargetArray->SetValue( "lazy", 7 );
   myTargetArray->SetValue( "dog", 8 );

   // Displays the values of the target Array.
   Console::WriteLine( "The target Array contains the following (before and after copying):" );
   PrintValues( myTargetArray, ' ' );

   // Copies the entire source Queue to the target Array, starting at index 6.
   mySourceQ->CopyTo( myTargetArray, 6 );

   // Displays the values of the target Array.
   PrintValues( myTargetArray, ' ' );

   // Copies the entire source Queue to a new standard array.
   array<Object^>^myStandardArray = mySourceQ->ToArray();

   // Displays the values of the new standard array.
   Console::WriteLine( "The new standard array contains the following:" );
   PrintValues( myStandardArray, ' ' );
}

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

   Console::WriteLine();
}

Remarks

The Queue is not modified. The order of the elements in the new array is the same as the order of the elements from the beginning of the Queue to its end.

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