how can I convert an array of objects into an ICollection?

I am attempting to add an array of type Object to an ArrayList.

 Dim items(combo1.Items.Count - 1) As Object
Dim ic As ICollection
ic = CType(items, ICollection)
Dim al As New ArrayList

(this is giving me an error)

Just do the following.

Dim al As New ArrayList

Combo1.Items is already a collection.

ICollection is an interface and all of it functionality must be programmed by you.

I hope this was of some help
