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

public void CopyTo(
	InstanceData[] instances,
	int index


Type: System.Diagnostics.InstanceData[]

The one-dimensional Array that is the destination of the values copied from the collection.

Type: System.Int32

The zero-based index value at which to add the new instances.

The following code example uses the CopyTo method to convert an InstanceDataCollection into an array of InstanceData objects. The values of the InstanceName and Sample properties of each element of the array are passed to a function for further processing.

// Display the contents of an InstanceDataCollection.
public static void ProcessInstanceDataCollection(InstanceDataCollection idCol)

    InstanceData[] instDataArray = new InstanceData[idCol.Count];

    Console.WriteLine("  InstanceDataCollection for \"{0}\" " +
        "has {1} elements.", idCol.CounterName, idCol.Count);

    // Copy and process the InstanceData array.
    idCol.CopyTo(instDataArray, 0);

    int idX;
    for(idX=0; idX<instDataArray.Length; idX++)
        ProcessInstanceDataObject(instDataArray[idX].InstanceName, instDataArray[idX].Sample);
