C# Copying An Array Class

How do I copy the contents from this array class  (valueconditions) to a new array class (obj.valueCondition)?

 private treeNode[] GetAllSupplierProductsUsingFilter(valueCondition valueconditions)
        {
                queryType obj = new queryType();
               obj.valueCondition = valueconditions;   --> Help?
         }

Here is how they are defined.
        valueCondition valueconditions = new valueCondition();


 public partial class valueCondition : object, System.ComponentModel.INotifyPropertyChanged {
       
        private string attributeURLField;
       
        private string attributeValueField;
       
        [System.Xml.Serialization.XmlElementAttribute(Order=0)]
        public string attributeURL {
            get {
                return this.attributeURLField;
            }
            set {
                this.attributeURLField = value;
                this.RaisePropertyChanged("attributeURL");
            }
        }
       
        [System.Xml.Serialization.XmlElementAttribute(Order=1)]
        public string attributeValue {
            get {
                return this.attributeValueField;
            }
            set {
                this.attributeValueField = value;
                this.RaisePropertyChanged("attributeValue");
            }
        }

So you need it to be exactly the same array?

You could try to clone it.

obj.valueCondition = (valueCondition) valueconditions.Clone();

Clone an array will not work for objects, as it only does a shallow copy. ( obj.valueCondition will contain references to the same elements as the original valueconditions)
One possible solution is to add a clone method to valueCondition   class as:
public valueCondition Clone()
{
        //The line below will copy all your value type properties
        valueCondition cloned= (valueCondition )this.MemberwiseClone();
        return cloned;
}

Open in new window


and in your code just loop the original array and clone each member as shown below:
if ((valueconditions != null) && (((valueconditions.Length > 0))
{
  List<valueCondition> cloned = new List<valueCondition>();
  foreach(var item in valueconditions)
  {
    cloned.Add(item.Clone());
  }  
  obj.valueCondition = cloned.ToArray();
}
else
{
  obj.valueCondition = null; 
}
