StringBuilder.CopyTo Method in C#

This method is used to copy the characters from a specified segment of this instance to a specified segment of a destination Char array.

Syntax:

public void CopyTo (int sourceIndex, char[] destination, int destinationIndex, int count);

Parameters:

  • sourceIndex: It is the starting position in this instance where characters will be copied from. The index is zero-based.
  • destination: It is the array where characters will be copied.
  • destinationIndex: It is the starting position in destination where characters will be copied. The index is zero-based.
  • count: It is the number of characters to be copied.

Exceptions:



  • ArgumentNullException: If the destination is null.
  • ArgumentOutOfRangeException: If the sourceIndex, destinationIndex, or count, is less than zero or the sourceIndex is greater than the length of this instance.
  • ArgumentException: If the sourceIndex + count is greater than the length of this instance or the destinationIndex + count is greater than the length of destination.
