value is null.

The following example demonstrates how to create a CounterCreationDataCollection object by using a CounterCreationData array.

string myCategoryName;
int numberOfCounters;
Console.Write("Enter the category Name : ");
myCategoryName = Console.ReadLine();
// Check if the category already exists or not. 
if (!PerformanceCounterCategory.Exists(myCategoryName))
    Console.Write("Enter the number of counters : ");
    numberOfCounters = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
    CounterCreationData[] myCounterCreationData =
       new CounterCreationData[numberOfCounters];

    for (int i = 0; i < numberOfCounters; i++)
        Console.Write("Enter the counter name for {0} counter : ", i);
        myCounterCreationData[i] = new CounterCreationData();
        myCounterCreationData[i].CounterName = Console.ReadLine();
    CounterCreationDataCollection myCounterCollection =
       new CounterCreationDataCollection(myCounterCreationData);
    // Create the category.
       "Sample Category",
    PerformanceCounterCategoryType.SingleInstance, myCounterCollection);

    Console.WriteLine("The list of counters in 'CounterCollection' are :");
    for (int i = 0; i < myCounterCollection.Count; i++)
        Console.WriteLine("Counter {0} is '{1}'", i, myCounterCollection[i].CounterName);
    Console.WriteLine("The category already exists");
