C# | Create a Queue from another collection

Queue represents a first-in, first out collection of object. It is used when you need a first-in, first-out access of items. When you add an item in the list, it is called enqueue, and when you remove an item, it is called deque. Queue.ToArray Method used to copy the Queue elements to a new array.

Properties :

  • Enqueue adds an element to the end of the Queue.
  • Dequeue removes the oldest element from the start of the Queue.
  • Peek returns the oldest element that is at the start of the Queue but does not remove it from the Queue.
  • The capacity of a Queue is the number of elements the Queue can hold.
  • As elements are added to a Queue, the capacity is automatically increased as required by reallocating the internal array.
  • Queue accepts null as a valid value for reference types and allows duplicate elements.

Syntax:

public T[] ToArray ();

Here T[] is a new array containing elements copied from the Queue.

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

        // contained in the myQueue2
        Console.Write("Total number of elements in the Queue 2 are : ");
  
        Console.WriteLine(myQueue2.Count);

        foreach(string str in myQueue2)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(str);
        }
    }
