Array.ConvertAll<'TInput, 'TOutput> Method ('TInput, Converter<'TInput, 'TOutput>)
Converts an array of one type to an array of another type.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
static member ConvertAll<'TInput, 'TOutput> : array:'TInput * converter:Converter<'TInput, 'TOutput> -> 'TOutput
The one-dimensional, zero-based Array to convert to a target type.
Return ValueType: 'TOutput
An array of the target type containing the converted elements from the source array.
The type of the elements of the source array.
The type of the elements of the target array.
The Converter<'TInput, 'TOutput> is a delegate to a method that converts an object to the target type. The elements of array are individually passed to the Converter<'TInput, 'TOutput>, and the converted elements are saved in the new array.
The source array remains unchanged.
This method is an O(n) operation, where n is the Length of array.
The following code example defines a method named PointFToPoint that converts a PointF structure to a Point structure. The example then creates an array of PointF structures, creates a Converter<PointF, Point> delegate (Converter(Of PointF, Point) in Visual Basic) to represent the PointFToPoint method, and passes the delegate to the method. The method passes each element of the input list to the PointFToPoint method and puts the converted elements into a new list of Point structures. Both lists are displayed.
