value

A collection of CounterCreationData instances to append to the existing collection.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The following example demonstrates how to use the AddRange(CounterCreationDataCollection) method overload to add CounterCreationData objects from one CounterCreationDataCollection to another CounterCreationDataCollection.
