Queue.ToArray Method

Copies the Queue elements to a new array.

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

public virtual Object[] ToArray ()
public Object[] ToArray ()
public function ToArray () : Object[]
Not applicable.

Return Value

A new array containing elements copied from the Queue.

The Queue is not modified. The order of the elements in the new array is the same as the order of the elements from the beginning of the Queue to its end.

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

The following example shows how to copy a Queue into a one-dimensional array.

using System;
using System.Collections;
public class SamplesQueue  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Creates and initializes the source Queue.
      Queue mySourceQ = new Queue();
      mySourceQ.Enqueue( "three" );
      mySourceQ.Enqueue( "napping" );
      mySourceQ.Enqueue( "cats" );
      mySourceQ.Enqueue( "in" );
      mySourceQ.Enqueue( "the" );
      mySourceQ.Enqueue( "barn" );

      // Creates and initializes the one-dimensional target Array.
      Array myTargetArray=Array.CreateInstance( typeof(String), 15 );
      myTargetArray.SetValue( "The", 0 );
      myTargetArray.SetValue( "quick", 1 );
      myTargetArray.SetValue( "brown", 2 );
      myTargetArray.SetValue( "fox", 3 );
      myTargetArray.SetValue( "jumped", 4 );
      myTargetArray.SetValue( "over", 5 );
      myTargetArray.SetValue( "the", 6 );
      myTargetArray.SetValue( "lazy", 7 );
      myTargetArray.SetValue( "dog", 8 );

      // Displays the values of the target Array.
      Console.WriteLine( "The target Array contains the following (before and after copying):" );
      PrintValues( myTargetArray, ' ' );

      // Copies the entire source Queue to the target Array, starting at index 6.
      mySourceQ.CopyTo( myTargetArray, 6 );

      // Displays the values of the target Array.
      PrintValues( myTargetArray, ' ' );

      // Copies the entire source Queue to a new standard array.
      Object[] myStandardArray = mySourceQ.ToArray();

      // Displays the values of the new standard array.
      Console.WriteLine( "The new standard array contains the following:" );
      PrintValues( myStandardArray, ' ' );
   }


   public static void PrintValues( Array myArr, char mySeparator )  {
      foreach ( Object myObj in myArr )  {
         Console.Write( "{0}{1}", mySeparator, myObj );
      }
      Console.WriteLine();
   }
}
