If you just want to change the array length please test code below

int [] a=int[16];
a=int[32];
a[31]=12;

you can create a new int array and assigned to a.
you can change int to other types

VB's ReDim Preserve compiles to the following

int[] a = int[16];

// This is the redim stuff
int[] b = int[16];
for (int I = 0; I < a.Length && I < b.Length; I++)
    b[I] = a[I];

Sorry, to add to that...


int[] a = int[16];

// This is the redim stuff
int[] b = int[16];
for (int I = 0; I < a.Length && I < b.Length; I++)
    b[I] = a[I];

a = b;

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Bah, I'm a lazy typist

int[] a = int[16];
// Populate a

// This is the redim stuff
int[] b = int[32];
for (int I = 0; I < a.Length && I < b.Length; I++)
    b[I] = a[I];

a = b;


At this point, a will be an int array with 32 slots, containing whatever data was in a when it only had 16 slots.  This will also cover cases where you decrease the number of slots.

if you want remain data in array
use this improve my code may be more quick

int [] a=int[16];
//doing something
a=int[32];

Array.Copy(a,b,a.Length>b.Length?b.Length:a.Length);
a[31]=12;

Use the following method:

      public static Array ReDimPreserve(Array input, int size) {
            Array result=(Array)Activator.CreateInstance(input.GetType(), new object[] {size});
            Array.Copy(input, result, Math.Min(input.Length, result.Length));
            return result;
      }

And then you use it like this:

      int [] a=int[16];
      a=(int[])ReDimArrayPreserve(a, 32);

Note that this works for arrays of any type, not only ints. because of that, you need to typecast the returned array into the array type you're expecting.
