MenuItemBindingCollection.CopyTo Method (MenuItemBinding[], Int32)

Copies all the items from the MenuItemBindingCollection object to a compatible one-dimensional array of MenuItemBinding objects, starting at the specified index in the target array.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public void CopyTo(
	MenuItemBinding[] array,
	int index
)

Parameters

array
Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.MenuItemBinding[]

A zero-based array of MenuItemBinding objects that receives the copied items from the collection.

index
Type: System.Int32

The position in the target array at which to start receiving the copied content.

Use the CopyTo method to copy the contents of the collection into the specified zero-based array. Items are copied starting at the specified index of the target array. With the array, you can then use array syntax to access the items in the MenuItemBindingCollection object.

As an alternative, you can also use the GetEnumerator method to create an enumerator that can be used to access the items in the collection.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the CopyTo method to copy the MenuItemBinding objects from the collection to an array. The array is then iterated through to display the properties of the MenuItemBinding objects. For this example to work correctly, you must copy the sample XML data below to a file named Map.xml.
