Property Value

Type: System::Int32

The number of strings contained in the StringCollection.

Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.

The following code example copies a StringCollection to an array.

#using <System.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
using namespace System::Collections::Specialized;
void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myCol );
int main()
{

   // Creates and initializes a new StringCollection.
   StringCollection^ myCol = gcnew StringCollection;
   array<String^>^myArr = {"RED","orange","yellow","RED","green","blue","RED","indigo","violet","RED"};
   myCol->AddRange( myArr );
   Console::WriteLine( "Initial contents of the StringCollection:" );
   PrintValues( myCol );

   // Copies the collection to a new array starting at index 0.
   array<String^>^myArr2 = gcnew array<String^>(myCol->Count);
   myCol->CopyTo( myArr2, 0 );
   Console::WriteLine( "The new array contains:" );
   for ( int i = 0; i < myArr2->Length; i++ )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "   [{0}] {1}", i, myArr2[ i ] );

   }
   Console::WriteLine();
}

void PrintValues( IEnumerable^ myCol )
{
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myCol->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      Object^ obj = safe_cast<Object^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::WriteLine( "   {0}", obj );
   }

   Console::WriteLine();
}
