HttpModuleCollection.CopyTo Method (Array, Int32)


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

Copies members of the module collection to an Array, beginning at the specified index of the array.

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

public void CopyTo(
	Array dest,
	int index


Type: System.Array

The destination Array.

Type: System.Int32

The index of the destination Array where copying starts.

The following code example demonstrates the AllKeys property and the GetKey and CopyTo methods of the HttpModuleCollection class. The example gets the application object for the current request from the current HttpContext object. It then extracts the HttpModuleCollection object from the application instance and displays the names of the IHttpModule objects.

<%@ Page language="C#" %>
<%@ Import Namespace = "System.Data"  %>
<script runat="server">
// System.Web.HttpModuleCollection.AllKeys;GetKey;CopyTo

void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    // Get the HttpContext object for the current request.
    HttpContext myHttpContext = HttpContext.Current;
    // Get the application object for the current request.
    HttpApplication myHttpApplication = myHttpContext.ApplicationInstance;
    // Get the collection of all HTTPModule objects for the current application.
    HttpModuleCollection myHttpModuleCollection = myHttpApplication.Modules;

    // Get the name of the HttpModule object at index 1.
    string httpModuleName = myHttpModuleCollection.GetKey(1);
    Response.Write("The name of the HttpModule object at index 1" + " is " +"'"+  httpModuleName+"'." + "<br><br>"); 

    string[] allModules = myHttpModuleCollection.AllKeys;

    // Display the names of all HttpModule objects.
    Response.Write("<b>The HttpModule objects contained in the HttpModuleCollection are:</b><br>");

    for(int i=0; i < allModules.Length; i++)
       Response.Write("Module" + i + "  : " + allModules[i] + "<br>");

    // Copy the HttpModule objects in the collection into an array.
    System.Array httpModuleArray = Array.CreateInstance(typeof(object),myHttpModuleCollection.AllKeys.Length);
    Response.Write("<br><br><b>Successfully copied the HttpModule objects in the HttpModuleCollection to an array."+
       "<br>Displaying the HttpModule objects in array:</b><br>");

    for(int i=0; i < httpModuleArray.Length; i++)
       Response.Write("Module" + i + ": " + httpModuleArray.GetValue(i) + "<br>");
