SortedList.SetByIndex Method

Replaces the value at a specific index in a SortedList object.

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

public virtual void SetByIndex(
	int index,
	Object value
)

Parameters

index
Type: System.Int32

The zero-based index at which to save value.

value
Type: System.Object

The Object to save into the SortedList object. The value can be null.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

index is outside the range of valid indexes for the SortedList object.

The index sequence is based on the sort sequence. When an element is added, it is inserted into SortedList in the correct sort order, and the indexing adjusts accordingly. When an element is removed, the indexing also adjusts accordingly. Therefore, the index of a specific key/value pair might change as elements are added or removed from the SortedList object.

This method is an O(1) operation.

The following code example shows how to replace the value of an existing element in a SortedList object.

using System;
using System.Collections;
public class SamplesSortedList  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Creates and initializes a new SortedList.
      SortedList mySL = new SortedList();
      mySL.Add( 2, "two" );
      mySL.Add( 3, "three" );
      mySL.Add( 1, "one" );
      mySL.Add( 0, "zero" );
      mySL.Add( 4, "four" );

      // Displays the values of the SortedList.
      Console.WriteLine( "The SortedList contains the following values:" );
      PrintIndexAndKeysAndValues( mySL );

      // Replaces the values at index 3 and index 4.
      mySL.SetByIndex( 3, "III" );
      mySL.SetByIndex( 4, "IV" );

      // Displays the updated values of the SortedList.
      Console.WriteLine( "After replacing the value at index 3 and index 4," );
      PrintIndexAndKeysAndValues( mySL );
   }


   public static void PrintIndexAndKeysAndValues( SortedList myList )  {
      Console.WriteLine( "\t-INDEX-\t-KEY-\t-VALUE-" );
      for ( int i = 0; i < myList.Count; i++ )  {
         Console.WriteLine( "\t[{0}]:\t{1}\t{2}", i, myList.GetKey(i), myList.GetByIndex(i) );
      }
      Console.WriteLine();
   }
}
/* 
This code produces the following output.

The SortedList contains the following values:
    -INDEX-    -KEY-    -VALUE-
    [0]:    0    zero
    [1]:    1    one
    [2]:    2    two
    [3]:    3    three
    [4]:    4    four

After replacing the value at index 3 and index 4,
    -INDEX-    -KEY-    -VALUE-
    [0]:    0    zero
    [1]:    1    one
    [2]:    2    two
    [3]:    3    III
    [4]:    4    IV
