    foreach (t item in target)
    {
        newList.Add(RndNumberGenerator.Next(), item);
    }
    target.Clear();
    for (int i = 0; i < newList.Count; i++)
    {
        target.Add(newList.Values[i]);

List<int> intList = new List<int>();
            intList.Add(1);
            intList.Add(2);
            intList.Add(3);
