            arr.CopyTo(array);

                    for (int i = 0; i < arr.Count; i++)
            {
                listBox1.Items.Add(array[i].name);

I am not sure what you expect to happen.
Debugging shows the the ArrayList contains an array of String and the array you are copying to is an array of MyStruct.
There is a type conflict.
If you use a stronger typing such as List<string> instead of ArrayList this would be detected at compile time.

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    List<string> arr = new List<string>(); //<--- changed from ArrayList
    arr.Add(textBox2.Text);
    arr.Add(textBox1.Text);

    MyStruct[] array = new MyStruct[arr.Count];
    arr.CopyTo(array); //<--- compile error here

    for (int i = 0; i < arr.Count; i++)
    {
        listBox1.Items.Add(array[i].name);


        listBox1.Items.Add(array[i].data);
    }
}

You will have to re-think your code.

Why don't you try to do a standard copy as below?

//  arr.CopyTo(array);
  for (int i = 0; i < arr.Count; i++)
      array[i].name = arr[i].toString();
