C# | Getting a subset of the elements from the source ArrayList

ArrayList.GetRange(Int32, Int32) Method is used to get an ArrayList which will represent a subset of the elements in the source ArrayList.

Syntax:

public virtual System.Collections.ArrayList GetRange (int index, int count);

Parameters:



index: It is of Int32 type and represents the zero-based ArrayList index at which the range starts.
count: It is of Int32 type and represents the number of elements in the range.

Return Value: This method returns an ArrayList which represents a subset of the elements in the source ArrayList.

Exceptions:

  • ArgumentOutOfRangeException: If the value of the index is less than zero, or if the value of count is less than zero.
  • ArgumentException: If the value of an index and count does not denote a valid range of elements in the ArrayList.

Below programs illustrate the above-discussed method:

        // elements starting at index 0.

        // starting at index 1 with the values
        // in the queue.
        myarraylist.SetRange(2, mynewList);
  
        // Displays the values of six 
        // elements starting at index 0.
        newarraylist = myarraylist.GetRange(0, 6);
        Console.WriteLine("\nNow elements are:");
        Displaydata(newarraylist, '\n');
