OrderedDictionary.Values Property

Gets an ICollection object containing the values in the OrderedDictionary collection.

Namespace:  System.Collections.Specialized
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public ICollection Values { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.ICollection
An ICollection object containing the values in the OrderedDictionary collection.



The returned ICollection object is not a static copy; instead, the ICollection refers back to the values in the original OrderedDictionary collection. Therefore, changes to the OrderedDictionary continue to be reflected in the ICollection.

The following code example demonstrates the creation and population of an OrderedDictionary collection, and then prints the contents to the console. In this example, the Keys and Values properties are passed to a method that displays the contents. This code is part of a larger code example that can be viewed at OrderedDictionary.

// Creates and initializes a OrderedDictionary.
OrderedDictionary myOrderedDictionary = new OrderedDictionary();
myOrderedDictionary.Add("testKey1", "testValue1");
myOrderedDictionary.Add("testKey2", "testValue2");
myOrderedDictionary.Add("keyToDelete", "valueToDelete");
myOrderedDictionary.Add("testKey3", "testValue3");

ICollection keyCollection = myOrderedDictionary.Keys;
ICollection valueCollection = myOrderedDictionary.Values;

// Display the contents using the key and value collections
DisplayContents(keyCollection, valueCollection, myOrderedDictionary.Count);
// Displays the contents of the OrderedDictionary from its keys and values 
public static void DisplayContents(
    ICollection keyCollection, ICollection valueCollection, int dictionarySize)
    String[] myKeys = new String[dictionarySize];
    String[] myValues = new String[dictionarySize];
    keyCollection.CopyTo(myKeys, 0);
    valueCollection.CopyTo(myValues, 0);

    // Displays the contents of the OrderedDictionary
    Console.WriteLine("   INDEX KEY                       VALUE");
    for (int i = 0; i < dictionarySize; i++)
        Console.WriteLine("   {0,-5} {1,-25} {2}",
            i, myKeys[i], myValues[i]);
