The zero-based index in array at which copying begins.
The following example demonstrates all three overloads of the CopyTo method. A List(T) of strings is created and populated with 5 strings. An empty string array of 15 elements is created, and the CopyTo(T) method overload is used to copy all the elements of the list to the array beginning at the first element of the array. The method overload is used to copy all the elements of the list to the array beginning at array index 6 (leaving index 5 empty). Finally, the CopyTo(Int32, T, Int32, Int32) method overload is used to copy 3 elements from the list, beginning with index 2, to the array beginning at array index 12 (leaving index 11 empty). The contents of the array are then displayed.
