TreeNodeCollection.ICollection.CopyTo(Array, Int32) TreeNodeCollection.ICollection.CopyTo(Array, Int32) Method

Definition

Copies all the items from the TreeNodeCollection object to a compatible one-dimensional Array, starting at the specified index in the target array.

 virtual void System.Collections.ICollection.CopyTo(Array ^ array, int index) = System::Collections::ICollection::CopyTo;
void ICollection.CopyTo (Array array, int index);

Parameters

array
Array Array

A zero-based Array object that receives the copied items from the TreeNodeCollection.

index
Int32 Int32

The position in the target array at which to start receiving the copied content.

Implements

Exceptions

array is not an array of TreeNode objects.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the CopyTo method to copy the values of a TreeNodeCollection into an array. Notice that the Nodes property returns a TreeNodeCollection object.

Remarks

Use the CopyTo method to copy the contents of the TreeNodeCollection into the specified zero-based System.Array object. Items are copied starting at the specified index of the target array. With the System.Array object, you can then use array syntax to access the items in the TreeNodeCollection.

As an alternative, you can also use the GetEnumerator method to create an enumerator that can be used to access the items in the collection.
