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

Dim myCategoryName As String
Dim numberOfCounters As Integer
Console.Write("Enter the number of counters : ")
numberOfCounters = Integer.Parse(Console.ReadLine())
Dim myCounterCreationData(numberOfCounters - 1) As CounterCreationData
Dim i As Integer
For i = 0 To numberOfCounters - 1
    Console.Write("Enter the counter name for {0} counter : ", i)
    myCounterCreationData(i) = New CounterCreationData()
    myCounterCreationData(i).CounterName = Console.ReadLine()
Next i
Dim myCounterCollection As New CounterCreationDataCollection(myCounterCreationData)
Console.Write("Enter the category Name:")
myCategoryName = Console.ReadLine()
' Check if the category already exists or not.
If Not PerformanceCounterCategory.Exists(myCategoryName) Then
    Dim myNewCounterCollection As New CounterCreationDataCollection(myCounterCollection)
    PerformanceCounterCategory.Create(myCategoryName, "Sample Category", _
       PerformanceCounterCategoryType.SingleInstance, myNewCounterCollection)

    Console.WriteLine("The list of counters in 'CounterCollection' are : ")

    For i = 0 To myNewCounterCollection.Count - 1
        Console.WriteLine("Counter {0} is '{1}'", i, myNewCounterCollection(i).CounterName)
    Next i
    Console.WriteLine("The category already exists")
