Copy Member of List to Array

I have some code like this.


 
struct CustomStruct
{
    int a;
    int b;
};

List<CustomStruct> myList = new List<CustomStruct>();

Open in new window


I want to copy the list of only "int a;" into a new array.

This of course will not work, but something along the lines of.

 
int[] myArray = new int[myList.Count];
myList.a.CopyToArray(myArray);

Open in new window


Thanks for you input.

if you are using .net 3.5 you could try:

public struct CustomStruct
{
 public   int a;
 public   int b;
};

List<CustomStruct> myList = new List<CustomStruct>();


var newArray = myList.Select(d => d.a).ToArray();

Great, thanks for the help.

So fart that seems to be exactly what i needed.

I was looking at msdn for List<t> and did not see explicitly it  listed there so completely missed it.

Thanks.

second way to achieve this by using converter

refer to following code
struct CustomStruct
{
    public int a;
    public int b;

    
};

  public static int ReturnCustomStructA(CustomStruct customStruct)
        {
            return customStruct.a;
        }

        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            CustomStruct customStruct1= new CustomStruct();
            customStruct1.a= 10;
            customStruct1.b=20;
            CustomStruct customStruct2= new CustomStruct();
            customStruct2.a= 11;
            customStruct2.b=20;
            List<CustomStruct> myList = new List<CustomStruct>();
            myList.Add(customStruct1);
            myList.Add(customStruct2);

            int[] values = myList.ConvertAll<int>(new Converter<CustomStruct, int>(ReturnCustomStructA)).ToArray();
}
