The ICollection<T> interface is the base interface for classes in the System.Collections.Generic namespace.

The ICollection<T> interface extends IEnumerable<T>; IDictionary<TKey, TValue> and IList<T> are more specialized interfaces that extend ICollection<T>. A IDictionary<TKey, TValue> implementation is a collection of key/value pairs, like the Dictionary<TKey, TValue> class. A IList<T> implementation is a collection of values, and its members can be accessed by index, like the List<T> class.

If neither the IDictionary<TKey, TValue> interface nor the IList<T> interface meet the requirements of the required collection, derive the new collection class from the ICollection<T> interface instead for more flexibility.

The following example implements the ICollection<T> interface to create a collection of custom Box objects named BoxCollection. Each Box has height, length, and width properties, which are used to define equality. Equality can be defined as all dimensions being the same or the volume being the same. The Box class implements the IEquatable<T> interface to define the default equality as the dimensions being the same.

The BoxCollection class implements the Contains method to use the default equality to determine whether a Box is in the collection. This method is used by the Add method so that each Box added to the collection has a unique set of dimensions. The BoxCollection class also provides an overload of the Contains method that takes a specified EqualityComparer<T> object, such as BoxSameDimensions and BoxSameVol classes in the example.

This example also implements an IEnumerator<T> interface for the BoxCollection class so that the collection can be enumerated.
