C# convert array to list

In this post we will se how to convert array to list. We need to convert array object to generic list many times in C# programming. Converting array to list can be done by various ways. We are going to see C# examples to convert array to the list.

Conversion of array to an list can be done using constructor of the generic List class. We here use constructor of List and pass array object as parameter to List constructor and then convert it to List>

c# array to list
.

Example - convert array to list [C#]:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

class Program
{
static void Main()
{
// String array to convert to list
 string[] strarr = new string[]
 {
  "Convert",
  "Array",
  "To",
  "list",
 };

//Now we will convert above array using new list constructor.
 List<string> arrayToList = new List<string>(strarr);
}

In above example we saw how we converted array to list using List constructor. Now we will see other way to convert Array to list. In this way we use .ToList() instance method that converts array to list. Below example shows how array get converted in to list using .ToList() parameter less instance method.

Example to convert array to list [C#]:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

class Program
{    
static void Main()
{    
// String array to convert to list    
 string[] strarr = new string[]    
 {
  "Convert",
  "Array",
  "To",
  "List",
 };
//Now we will convert above array using .ToList instance method.
List<string> arrayToList = strarr.ToList();
}
