ArrayList.CopyTo Method is used to copy the entire ArrayList to a compatible one-dimensional Array, starting at the beginning of the target array.
public virtual void CopyTo (Array array);
Here, array is the one-dimensional Array which is the destination of the elements copied from ArrayList. The Array must have zero-based indexing.
- ArgumentNullException: If the array is null.
- ArgumentException: If the array is multidimensional OR the number of elements in the source ArrayList is greater than the number of elements that the destination array can contain.
- InvalidCastException: If the type of the source ArrayList cannot be cast automatically to the type of the destination array.
Below programs illustrate the use of above-discussed method:
Before CopyTo Method: ArrayList Contains: A B C D E F G H String Array Contains: C C++ Java Python C# HTML CSS PHP DBMS After CopyTo Method: ArrayList Contains: A B C D E F G H String Array Contains: A B C D E F G H DBMS
System.ArgumentException: Destination array was not long enough. Check destIndex and length, and the array’s lower bounds
