  • Redim is used to resize some array, so while working in .Net or specifically C# i would recomend you using Collections under System.Collecitons.Generics namespace.

    like List<T> class

    Dictionary<T,S> class etc


    List<int> list = new List<int>(); // create a colleciton to store int....

    list.Add(1); // Add some number

    list.Add(2); // Add another Number.

    This will automatically be resized whenever you add something to it and you don't need Redim anymore here.

    I hope this will help.

  • public static Array Redim(Array origArray, Int32 desiredSize)
                System.Type t = origArray.GetType().GetElementType();
                Array newArray = Array.CreateInstance(t, desiredSize);
                Array.Copy(origArray, 0, newArray, 0, Math.Min(origArray.Length, desiredSize));
                return newArray;

  • Bear in mind that that's obsolete (only needed for .Net 1.x).

    For .Net 2.x and later, use Array.Resize<T>() as stated previously.
