ArrayList::AddRange Method

Adds the elements of an ICollection to the end of the ArrayList.

Namespace:  System.Collections
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public:
virtual void AddRange(
	ICollection^ c
)

Parameters

c
Type: System.Collections::ICollection

The ICollection whose elements should be added to the end of the ArrayList. The collection itself cannot be nullptr, but it can contain elements that are nullptr.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

c is nullptr.

NotSupportedException

The ArrayList is read-only.

-or-

The ArrayList has a fixed size.

ArrayList accepts nullptr as a valid value and allows duplicate elements.

The order of the elements in the ICollection is preserved in the ArrayList.

If the new Count (the current Count plus the size of the collection) will be greater than Capacity, the capacity of the ArrayList is increased by automatically reallocating the internal array to accommodate the new elements, and the existing elements are copied to the new array before the new elements are added.

If the ArrayList can accommodate the new elements without increasing the Capacity, this method is an O(n) operation, where n is the number of elements to be added. If the capacity needs to be increased to accommodate the new elements, this method becomes an O(n + m) operation, where n is the number of elements to be added and m is Count.

The following code example shows how to add elements to the ArrayList.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myList, char mySeparator );
int main()
{

   // Creates and initializes a new ArrayList.
   ArrayList^ myAL = gcnew ArrayList;
   myAL->Add( "The" );
   myAL->Add( "quick" );
   myAL->Add( "brown" );
   myAL->Add( "fox" );

   // Creates and initializes a new Queue.
   Queue^ myQueue = gcnew Queue;
   myQueue->Enqueue( "jumped" );
   myQueue->Enqueue( "over" );
   myQueue->Enqueue( "the" );
   myQueue->Enqueue( "lazy" );
   myQueue->Enqueue( "dog" );

   // Displays the ArrayList and the Queue.
   Console::WriteLine( "The ArrayList initially contains the following:" );
   PrintValues( myAL, '\t' );
   Console::WriteLine( "The Queue initially contains the following:" );
   PrintValues( myQueue, '\t' );

   // Copies the Queue elements to the end of the ArrayList.
   myAL->AddRange( myQueue );

   // Displays the ArrayList.
   Console::WriteLine( "The ArrayList now contains the following:" );
   PrintValues( myAL, '\t' );
}

void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myList, char mySeparator )
{
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myList->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      Object^ obj = safe_cast<Object^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::Write( "{0}{1}", mySeparator, obj );
   }

   Console::WriteLine();
}

/* 
This code produces the following output.

The ArrayList initially contains the following:
    The    quick    brown    fox
The Queue initially contains the following:
    jumped    over    the    lazy    dog
The ArrayList now contains the following:
    The    quick    brown    fox    jumped    over    the    lazy    dog
