SortedList.ContainsValue Method

Determines whether a SortedList object contains a specific value.

Namespace:  System.Collections
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

abstract ContainsValue : 
        value:Object -> bool  
override ContainsValue : 
        value:Object -> bool

Parameters

value
Type: System.Object

The value to locate in the SortedList object. The value can be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the SortedList object contains an element with the specified value; otherwise, false.

The values of the elements of the SortedList object are compared to the specified value using the Equals method.

This method performs a linear search; therefore, the average execution time is proportional to Count. That is, this method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, this method uses the collection’s objects’ Equals and CompareTo methods on item to determine whether item exists. In the earlier versions of the .NET Framework, this determination was made by using the Equals and CompareTo methods of the item parameter on the objects in the collection.

The following code example shows how to determine whether a SortedList object contains a specific element.
