public void CopyTo(

The Array to which the groups are copied.

Type: System.Int32

The first index within the array to which the groups are copied.

Use the CopyTo method to copy the groups in a collection (including the item references they contain) to a compatible array, starting at a specified index. This is useful, for example, when you want to sort the groups in the collection using the Array.Sort method. To do this, copy the groups into a compatible array, then sort the array. Next, use the Clear method to remove all the groups from the collection, then use the AddRange method to add the sorted array back to the collection.
