ParserErrorCollection.CopyTo Method (ParserError[], Int32)


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

Copies the ParserError objects in the collection to a compatible one-dimensional array, starting at the specified index of the target array.

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

public void CopyTo(
	ParserError[] array,
	int index


Type: System.Web.ParserError[]

An array of type ParserError to which the parser errors in the collection are copied.

Type: System.Int32

The first index within the array to which the ParserError is copied.

Use the CopyTo method to copy the ParserError objects in a collection (including the item references they contain) to a compatible array, starting at a specified index. This is useful when you want to sort the ParserError objects in the collection by using the Sort method. To do this:

  1. Copy the ParserError objects into a compatible array.

  2. Sort the array.

  3. Use the Remove method to remove all the ParserError objects from the collection.

  4. Use the AddRange method to add the sorted array back to the collection.

The following code example demonstrates how to copy the contents of a ParserErrorCollection object to the specified ParserError array.

// Copy the contents of the collection to a
// compatible array, starting at index 0 of the
// destination array. 
ParserError[] errorsToSort = new ParserError[5];
collection.CopyTo(errorsToSort, 0);
