TreeNodeBindingCollection.CopyTo Method (TreeNodeBinding[], Int32)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Copies all the items from the TreeNodeBindingCollection object to a compatible one-dimensional array of TreeNodeBinding objects, starting at the specified index in the target array.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public void CopyTo(
	TreeNodeBinding[] bindingArray,
	int index


Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TreeNodeBinding[]

A zero-based array of TreeNodeBinding objects that receives the copied items from the TreeNodeBindingCollection.

Type: System.Int32

The position in bindingArray at which to start receiving the copied content.

Use the CopyTo method to copy the contents of the TreeNodeBindingCollection object into bindingArray. Items are copied starting at index. You can then use the array to access the items that are in the collection.

As an alternative, you can use the GetEnumerator method to create an enumerator that can be used to access the items in the collection.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the CopyTo method to copy the contents of the DataBindings collection to an array.

  void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)

    // Create an array of TreeNodeBinding objects and then use the
    // CopyTo method to copy the contents of the DataBindings collection
    // to the array.
    TreeNodeBinding[] bindings = new TreeNodeBinding[BookTreeView.DataBindings.Count];
    BookTreeView.DataBindings.CopyTo(bindings, 0);

    // Iterate through the array and display the value of the text field
    // property of each TreeNodeBinding object.
    MessageLabel.Text = "The field names for each node level are: <br/>";

    foreach (TreeNodeBinding binding in bindings)

      MessageLabel.Text += binding.TextField + "<br/>";
