Initializes a new instance of the CounterCreationDataCollection class by using the specified collection of CounterCreationData instances.

Namespace: System.Diagnostics
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public CounterCreationDataCollection (
	CounterCreationDataCollection value
)
public CounterCreationDataCollection (
	CounterCreationDataCollection value
)
public function CounterCreationDataCollection (
	value : CounterCreationDataCollection
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

value

A CounterCreationDataCollection that holds CounterCreationData instances with which to initialize this CounterCreationDataCollection.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

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

The following example demonstrates how to create a CounterCreationDataCollection object by using CounterCreationData objects from another CounterCreationDataCollection.

   myCounterCreationData[ i ]->CounterName = Console::ReadLine();
