Marshal.Copy Method (IntPtr, Int64[], Int32, Int32)

Copies data from an unmanaged memory pointer to a managed 64-bit signed integer array.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static function Copy(
	source : IntPtr, 
	destination : long[], 
	startIndex : int, 
	length : int
)

Parameters

source
Type: System.IntPtr

The memory pointer to copy from.

destination
Type: System.Int64[]

The array to copy to.

startIndex
Type: System.Int32

The zero-based index into the array where Copy should start.

length
Type: System.Int32

The number of array elements to copy.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

source, destination, startIndex, or length is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Unmanaged, C-style arrays do not contain bounds information, which prevents the startIndex and length parameters from being validated. Thus, the unmanaged data corresponding to the source parameter populates the managed array regardless of its usefulness. You must initalize the managed array with the appropriate size before calling the Marshal.Copy method.

NoteNote:

This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass user input to Marshal class methods without validation. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.

The following code example copies an array to unmanaged memory and then copies the unmanaged array back to managed memory.
