C# | Copy the elements of collection over a range of elements in ArrayList

ArrayList.SetRange(Int32, ICollection) Method is used to copy the elements of a collection over a range of elements in the ArrayList.

Syntax:

public virtual void SetRange (int index, System.Collections.ICollection c);

Parameters:



index: It is a zero-based ArrayList index at which to start copying the elements of c. The type of this parameter is System.Int32.

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

Exceptions:

  • ArgumentNullException: If the value of c is null.
  • NotSupportedException: If the ArrayList is read-only.
  • ArgumentOutOfRangeException: If the index is less than zero or [index + number of elements in c] > Count.

Below given are some examples to understand the implementation in a better way:

        // There are total 4 elements
        string[] str = { "This", "is", "C#", "Tutorial" };
          
        // using SetRange() Method
        // starting from index 0
        mylist.SetRange(0, str);
  
        Show("ArrayList is", mylist);
    }
      
    // show method to display the result
    static void Show(string arr, ArrayList mylist)
    {
        for (int j = 0; j < mylist.Count; j++) {
              
            Console.WriteLine(arr + "[" + j + "] = " + mylist[j]);
        }
    }
}

Output:

ArrayList is[0] = This
ArrayList is[1] = is
ArrayList is[2] = C#
ArrayList is[3] = Tutorial
ArrayList is[4] = s
ArrayList is[5] = G
ArrayList is[6] = F
ArrayList is[7] = G
