The CopyTo method is useful when you want to create a custom array that can contain the zones in the WebPartZoneCollection collection, a subset of those zones, or a superset of those zones.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the CopyTo method. The complete code for the example, including a user control, a page containing the zones, and a partial class file that contains the code, is found in the Example section of the WebPartZoneCollection class overview.

The following section of the code demonstrates usage of the CopyTo method. To execute the code, load the page in a browser, and click the Zone Names from Array button. The collection of zones is loaded into an array, and all zone IDs are copied into a label.

protected void Button3_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  Label1.Text = String.Empty;
  WebPartZoneBase[] zoneArray = new WebPartZoneBase[mgr.Zones.Count];
  mgr.Zones.CopyTo(zoneArray, 0);
  Label1.Text = zoneArray[2].ID;
  Label1.Text += ", " + zoneArray[1].ID;
  Label1.Text += ", " + zoneArray[0].ID;
