SortedList.CopyTo(Array, Int32) SortedList.CopyTo(Array, Int32) SortedList.CopyTo(Array, Int32) Method

Definition

Copies SortedList elements to a one-dimensional Array object, starting at the specified index in the array.

public:
 virtual void CopyTo(Array ^ array, int arrayIndex);
public virtual void CopyTo (Array array, int arrayIndex);
abstract member CopyTo : Array * int -> unit
override this.CopyTo : Array * int -> unit

Parameters

array
Array Array Array

The one-dimensional Array object that is the destination of the DictionaryEntry objects copied from SortedList. The Array must have zero-based indexing.

arrayIndex
Int32 Int32 Int32

The zero-based index in array at which copying begins.

Implements

Exceptions

array is multidimensional.

-or-

The number of elements in the source SortedList object is greater than the available space from arrayIndex to the end of the destination array.

The type of the source SortedList cannot be cast automatically to the type of the destination array.

Examples

The following code example shows how to copy the values in a SortedList object into a one-dimensional Array object.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintValues( array<DictionaryEntry>^ myArr, Char mySeparator );
int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes the source SortedList.
   SortedList^ mySourceList = gcnew SortedList;
   mySourceList->Add( 2, "cats" );
   mySourceList->Add( 3, "in" );
   mySourceList->Add( 1, "napping" );
   mySourceList->Add( 4, "the" );
   mySourceList->Add( 0, "three" );
   mySourceList->Add( 5, "barn" );
   
   // Creates and initializes the one-dimensional target Array.
   array<String^>^tempArray = {"The","quick","brown","fox","jumps","over","the","lazy","dog"};
   array<DictionaryEntry>^myTargetArray = gcnew array<DictionaryEntry>(15);
   int i = 0;
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = tempArray->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      String^ s = safe_cast<String^>(myEnum->Current);
      myTargetArray[ i ].Key = i;
      myTargetArray[ i ].Value = s;
      i++;
   }

   
   // 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 SortedList to the target SortedList, starting at index 6.
   mySourceList->CopyTo( myTargetArray, 6 );
   
   // Displays the values of the target Array.
   PrintValues( myTargetArray, ' ' );
}

void PrintValues( array<DictionaryEntry>^ myArr, Char mySeparator )
{
   for ( int i = 0; i < myArr->Length; i++ )
      Console::Write( "{0}{1}", mySeparator, myArr[ i ].Value );
   Console::WriteLine();
}

Remarks

The key/value pairs are copied to the Array object in the same order in which the enumerator iterates through the SortedList object.

To copy only the keys in the SortedList, use SortedList.Keys.CopyTo.

To copy only the values in the SortedList, use SortedList.Values.CopyTo.

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